From the end of the Enlightenment to the middle of the twentieth century philosophy took fascinating and controversial paths whose relevance to contemporary post-modernist thought is becoming ever clearer. This volume traces the English-language side of the period, while also taking into account those continental thinkers who deeply influenced twentieth-century, English-language philosophy. The story begins with Reid, Coleridge, and Bentham--who set the agenda for much that followed--and continues with a portrait of the nineteenth century's greatest British philosopher, John Stuart Mill. It then surveys the cross-currents of thought at the end of the century, including American pragmatism, a movement never more influential than now. Finally it assesses two phases of what Skorupski calls "analytic modernism"--the revolution against idealism of Moore and Russell, and the Viennese sequel whose project was to show that philosophy consists of pseudo-problems.

John Skorupski is at St Andrews University.Review:
'John Skorupski has tackled the challenges imposed by his brief with remarkable success, giving us a cogently devised and vividly presented history of the emergence of analytical modernism from the post-Kantian philosophical world.'
Times Literary Supplement
'libraries serving philosophy departments will undoubtedly want this entire Oxford series in their holdings, if only for the sake of completeness'
