Format: Paperback
This book contains a number of recent essays dealing with a priori justification and knowledge. To those who follow this area of epistemology, many of the names will be familiar, and this volume also has two essays which respond to Albert Casullo's 2003 monograph A Priori Justification, as well as Casullo's own response to some of his critics. Casullo has most consistently carried the thread of a priori studies in the last 30 years and so these additions to his corpus are welcome. The other essays range from naturalism to philosophy of physics; all are substantial and interesting, and the collection is worth the price.

However, I give the book four stars because of poor editing. I have noticed many, many spelling errors and word omissions throughout the book. Not all are subtle, and some are even glaring--it is surprising that they were not caught in the revision process. Another handicap is the lack of a systematic notation for formal logical statements. Many essays include logical formalizations and it would have been nice to see a consistent system of notation. Even worse is the fact that the proofs in the appendix of Oakley's essay seem to contain errors as well, which is nearly fatal for one hoping to follow them in detail.

Overall, despite the editorial weaknesses, I recommend the book to all those interested in contemporary views on the a priori.
