Editorial Reviews


"Philosophers...have a tendency to become highly specialized. The achievement of this book is that it breaks from that mould whilst not sacrificing the care, rigour and passion for exact and detailed articulation of positions on even the biggest issues on which philosophers pride themselves....It is a work which in many places leaves light where once there was darkness. Its breadth of ascope and contribution is a tribute, of course, to the wide ranging interestws, enthusiasms and understanding of its author." --ANU Reporter (Australian National University)

"It is a book to dip into for good ideas, interesting suggestions and, just possibly, long-distance connections between apparently unrelated issues."--Philosophy

"Pettit should be applauded for the breadth of his vision, and for the vigour that he brings to its elaboration."--European Journal of Philosophy

"Pettit's book is dense with explanation and argument, all of it thoughtful and careful, much of it liable to interest those concerned with the relevant issues. A host of pertinent topics are discussed. The book is very clearly written and well organised....This book represents a serious attempt to deal with a wide range of important issues and to connect these issues together."--Mind

"This is an interesting, wide-ranging book in the analytic tradition worth the attention of those with interests in the subjects mentioned in the subtitle."--The Philosophical Review
