A. J. Ayer (1910 -- 1989) was a man of startling complexity: an exceptionally rigorous and penetrating philosopher, he was also a dedicated hedonist and seducer. He traveled in the most glamorous social circles, yet his friends found him oddly remote. Internationally acclaimed author Ben Rogers brings the brilliant, strangely vulnerable author of the classic Language, Truth, and Logic to vivid life, along with the Oxford intellectual world where he met Isaiah Berlin, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and many other great thinkers and writers of the era. Colorful, intimate, and often poignant, this is a powerful biography of a provocative and unforgettable man whose ideas changed the landscape of Western thought.
From the Publisher:
The first authorized biography of the great twentieth-century philosopher unravels the enigma surrounding this complicated man whose book Language, Truth and Logic rocked the world of philosophy. Reprint.
A. J. Ayer, a prodigious thinker in analytic circles, once thought to bring an end to philosophy. Years later, philosophy is still being pursued by researchers, students and professors, and A. J. Ayer's work has fallen by the wayside. Ben Rogers provides a balanced perspective of this unusual thinker, examining both his philosophical work and his life outside philosophy.

"...Rogers [gives] us instead a beautifully balanced and rounded picture of a very complicated man." - Simon Blackburn 01/29/01
