Splendid. . . . The canvas is vast, the picture animated, the painter nonpareil. . . . Sorabji's work will encourage more adventurers to follow him to this fascinating new-found land.
One of the most important works in the history of metaphysics to appear in English for a considerable time. No one concerned with the problems with which it deals either as a historian of ideas or as a philosopher can afford to neglect it.
Unusually readable for such scholarly content, the book provides in rich and cogent terms a lively and well-balanced discussion of matters of concern to a wide academic audience.
