  • From PUP, the introduction to Analytic Philosophy in America: And Other Historical and Contemporary Essays by Scott Soames and the first chapter from The Analytic Tradition in Philosophy, Volume 1: The Founding Giants by Scott Soames.  
  • Scott Soames thinks philosophy is majestic and multi-faceted, is a leading philosopher of language and writes about the history and development of the analytic tradition in philosophy.
Enjoy the linkage.
