No serious philosopher or student of philosophy should be without a copy. Times Higher Education Supplement 'While every one of the five volumes of Davidson's essays is a philosophical treasure trove, all containing influential and important essays, this final volume is especially interesting since it encompasses a number of key topics that are of special significance in Davidson's thinking... One of the great merits of this volume is that it does indeed give a sense of the breadth of Davidson's thinking, and of the extent to which it extended beyond the usual confines of traditional "analytic" philosophy... the radical and idiosyncratic character of Davidson's thinking is still, it seems to me, very much underappreciated and often unrecognised ... The hope is that the publication of the essays in this volume, along with the essays included in the other four ... will eventually give rise to a more integrated appreciation of Davidson's work - work that constitutes one of the landmarks of twentieth-century philosophy' Jeff Malpas, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
