of eight of the chapters in this volume takes up aspects of the work of one of these philosophers. A ninth chapter explores commonalities and conflicts in the work of those discussed in the first eight essays. The objective of this volume, then, is primarily philosophical rather than historical, and certainly it is not hagiographical. The discussion of philosophical issues central to philosophy at Swansea during the years mentioned above will be done in a spirit characteristic of the conduct of philosophy at Swansea during those same years, that is, in a spirit that is both critical and constructive, deeply influenced by a distinctive reading of Wittgenstein and appreciative of philosophical traditions reaching back to Plato and the pre-Socratics.
