about

This collection of previously unpublished essays presents a new approach to the history of analytic philosophy--one that does not assume at the outset a general characterization of the distinguishing elements of the analytic tradition. Drawing together a venerable group of contributors,including John Rawls and Hilary Putnam, this volume explores the historical contexts in which analytic philosophers have worked, revealing multiple discontinuities and misunderstandings as well as a complex interaction between science and philosophical reflection.
Juliet Floyd is at Boston University. Sanford Shieh is at Wesleyan University.

Editorial Reviews

"[Future Pasts is] to be highly commended to anyone interested in knowing what our great 'contemporaries' really thought, and to understanding how their thought fails to fit into some of the compartments which we have become accustomed to."--Philosophy
