Rezensionen
"Schwartz's book...is, in my estimation, the mostuseful introduction to the history of analytic philosophy currentlyavailable for a general audience." (Notre DamePhilosophical Reviews, 15 December 2012)

"As far removed as I am from my own university studies inthe history of philosophy, I found reading the book a bracingrefresher of things learned long ago (and sometimes forgotten) anda source of more than a few new insights on familiarcontroversies."

(Teaching Philosophy, 1 March 2013)

"Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-and upper-levelundergraduates." (Choice, 1 December 2012)Stephen Schwartz's A Brief History of Analytic Philosophyprovides an engaging, non-technical historical introduction tocentral themes in analytical philosophy, the dominant approach tophilosophical issues in the English-speaking world since the onsetof the 20th century. Schwartz illuminates topics for novicesand specialists alike by tracing their sources to pressing disputesamong mathematicians and scientists as well as philosophers. Thebook, captivating in its own right, will prove especially usefulwhen read alongside targeted original sources. There is nothingelse quite like it.
