Originally given in 1953 as the Adamson Lecture at Manchester University, O n Philosophical Style has become the classic presentation of the thesis tha t profundity and clarity are not opposed philosophical virtues but rather r equired companions. Blanshard begins with the question: Why is it that phil osophers of great perception sometimes confess a failure to comprehend cert ain of their colleagues? He ends with the assertion "that the problem of st yle is not a problem of words and sentences merely, but of being the right kind of mine." In between, there is much offered, in fine style and short c ompass, for those who both write and read philosophy.
