Format: Paperback
A collection of essays rather than a single sustained argument, but nevertheless a fantastic statement of his mature philosophy. As usual for the man, the writing is a treat.

Format: Hardcover
Stick with Blackburn's Think, and his Dictionary of Philosophy. This one collects some of his professional publications. As with most philosophy publications, nothing is really said, If you mean X by Y, then I respond with Z, but no one sticks to a single thesis, or one that matters. Hedging throughout. Nothing ventured.
