Based on public lectures at Brown University, given by the pre-eminent philosopher, Timothy Williamson proposes an original and controversial theory on the nature and methodology of philosophy, rejects the ideology of the 'linguistic turn', the most distinctive trend of 20th century philosophy, explains the method of philosophy as a development from non-philosophical ways of thinking, suggests new ways of understanding what contemporary and past philosophers are doing
 
The standard narratives of the development of philosophy over the past century are increasingly inadequate, yet it remains unclear what should replace them. The Philosophy of Philosophy provides an original and provocative take on the nature and methodology of philosophy. Pre-eminent contemporary philosopher Timothy Williamson rejects the ideology of the most distinctive trend of 20th century philosophy¬óthe 'linguistic turn'. He describes the method of philosophy as evolving from non-philosophical ways of thinking and proposes a fresh understanding of both contemporary and past philosophers.This marks the second volume in the Blackwell/Brown Lectures in Philosophy series, offering compact books with cutting-edge research from across the discipline. Based on public lectures held at Brown University, the books in this series are written by established scholars of the highest caliber, presenting their work in a clear and concise format.
