I just read "The History of Western Philosophy" and liked it very much. I would like to now read a history that covers the span after Russell wrote the book, from 1940-present. Can anyone recommend a good book that explains the history of thought for this time period? I am looking for a somewhat high level overview so that if I find something I like I can delve deeper in a different book.
I haven't read it myself, but I've heard good things about Delacampagne.
The best thing on analytic philosophy in the 20th century is Scott Soames's 2 volume "Philosophical Analysis in the 20th century". That will take you through most of the important stuff in contemporary analytic philosophy.
