Brandom is one of the most significant philosophers writing today but paradoxically philosophers have found it difficult to get to grips with the details and implications of his work. A clear introduction to Brandomżs thought is sorely needed to facilitate critical engagement with his work. This is it. Jeremy Wanderer offers readers a clear introduction to Brandomżs project, in particular to his monumental work Making ItExplicit, one of the most significant (and daunting) works of philosophy of recent years. Wanderer gives a clear sense of Brandomżs project, which aids and motivates a close reading of his core text, and provides a context for an initial assessment of Brandomżs enterprise. This is the first book of its kind to situate Brandomżs work within contemporary Anglo-American philosophy and the history of philosophy more generally and will be a sought after aid to reading Brandom for advanced students and philosophers tackling his challengingbody of work.
