Editorial Reviews


‘Prime philosopher of Oxford’s golden age, and champion of both the richness of ordinary language and of natural beliefs’ - The Guardian

‘Distinguished Oxford philosopher whose spare, elegant work made sense of Kant’s metaphysics’ - The Independent

‘A stimulating and wide-ranging book.’ - A.J. Ayer, New Statesman

‘. . .this collection enabled one to appreciate the great versatility Professor Strawson has. We have here, under one cover, valuable contributions to the most diverse and broad ranging problems in philosophy.’ - Philosophical Books

About the Author

P.F. Strawson was regarded as one of Oxford’s most distinguished scholars. He taught at the University College of North Wales and at Oxford University, where he remained until his retirement in 1987. Associated with the golden age of Oxford scholarship, Strawson came to prominence with the publication of On Referring (Mind, 1950), in which he famously critiqued Russell’s theory of language. He was knighted in 1977 and throughout his life engaged in rigorous philosophical debate with leading thinkers such as Quine, Dummett and Austin throughout his life. His publications include Individuals: An Essay in Descriptive Metaphysics (1959) and The Bounds of Sense: An Essay on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason (1966).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sir Peter Strawson is one of the more interesting contemporaneous philosophers. His writing is clear, profound and funny. This book is a collection of several essays and conferences. He writes about almost every branch of Philosophy: Ethics, Politics, Logic, Philosophy of Language, etc. My favorite essay in this book is "Is existence never a predicate?"
