"Between them, the movements of Logical Postivism and Existentialism dominated philosophy in Europe for much of the last century, and the influence they exerted can still be felt today. In his widely acclaimed Contemporary Philosophy, Frederick Copleston provides a detailed and objective introduction to these two highly controversial areas of recent thought. Originally written in 1956, and revised in 1972, this book explores the work of many of the most important thinkers of the 20th century, including Ayer, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Sartre and Camus." "Written in a clear and accessible style, this book will prove invaluable to anyone looking for a general introduction to either of these fascinating and influential philosophical movements."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
