"Highly recommended for university collections."
"The volumes feature excellent indexical materials, especially a lengthy bio-bibliography, which includes biographical information and lists of major works of all the thinkers discussed in the essays. This feature alone makes the set valuable to any discipline touching on eighteenth-century intellectual endeavors. The contributors also uniformly write for a broader audience than philosophers alone; the essays on philosophy of language and normativity, among the most difficult philosophical topics covered, are accessible to nonspecialists." -- American Reference Books Annual
