Editorial Reviews


`It is refreshing to find in this volume essays whose candour and integrity is never compromised into making extraordinary claims about reality and predication. This is a book to be read and not to be forgotten in the light of the proliferating "isms" that appear in superabundance at the present. A fine collection of essays to be recommended.' Anthony Appleton, The Philosopher --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Flounder on November 26, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent collection of articles that has not received enough positive press. Strawson is/was a major player in the philosophy of language and in metaphysics...
Individuals is a major classic and an exciting, well-written text. Articles that are collected here continue on the same course. In addition, there are four additional articles on Kant, which are nice to see since Strawson's views are ubiquitous in the field.
Most of the articles have been previously published, except those on Kant. The classic articles, "Entity and Identity," "Universals," "Direct Singular Reference," "Austin and Locutionary Meaning," are here, as well as "Kant's New Foundations of Metaphysics," "The Problem of Realism and the Apriori," "Kant's Paralogisms," and "Kant on Substance."
