About this Book

Eleven Cambridge academics approach philosophy from various fields, to broaden its practical and theoretical applications.

  • Guides a tour through various academic departments-including history, political science, classics, law, and English-to ferret out the philosophy in their syllabi, and to show philosophy's symbiotic relationship with other fields
  • Provides a map of what philosophy is considered to be at Cambridge in the early twenty-first century, about a hundred years after the "founding fathers" of analytic philosophy reigned at Cambridge
  • Offers useful new directions for the study and application of philosophy, and how other fields can influence them
