"Overall, this book is useful both as an introduction to the philosophical literature on mechanisms and as an overview of the main themes in Darden's work. It is a good introduction not only because Darden's views have had such an influence on recent work on mechanisms in philosophy of science, but also because she discusses the work of other philosophers throughout the papers and in the final chapter."
