"Unger has always been a very original and independent philosopher,.... Unger's earlier papers are classics partly because of their originality, and partly because they give concise expression to deep and difficult philosophical problems.... in an appealing style. Fortunately, Oxford University Press has recently reprinted Unger's papers in two useful volumes." --Tim Crane, Times Literary Supplement
"...these two volumes bring together some excellent papers by one of the greatest contemporary analytic philosophers.... Unger pulls it off with a style and a sense of humour that is inviting to professionals and laymen alike.... Given Unger's wide range of published interests, there is something (if not a few things) in this collection for everyone."--Neil E. Williams, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
