Abstract:

The dialogue, combining informality with elements of drama, has been a favored form with philosophers since Plato; it lays bare the discussion, argument, and criticism which are part of the very subject-matter of philosophy. In this book some of the most distinguished philosophers in present-day Britain carry on the best traditions of the form. A.J. Ayer, Karl Popper, Gilbert Ryle and Peter Strawson, in dialogue with Bryan Magee, give authoritative introductions to their own work, even to the extent of saying what they think has been wrong with it.
