This admirable volume of readings is the first of a pair: the editors are to be applauded for placing the philosophy of color exactly where it should go, in double harness with the most recent discoveries in the science of color and color vision. Byrne and Hilbert concentrateon the main game, the question of realism, choose well, and bring the collection right up to date with two new essays quite as good as anything else in the volume.
