abstract

  • This chapter considers models for the historiography of philosophy that have been proposed by Beaney, Soames and Rorty. It argues that a fourth model, inspired by recent work of Normore and Panaccio, provides a better account of the methodological pluralism exhibited in much of the best scholarship on the history of philosophy. The authors go on to consider the different tasks that fall under this pluralistic approach. This chapter concludes with brief summaries of the remaining chapters in this volume.
