"Ruben utilizes concepts gleaned from the theories of explanation offered by Plato, Aristotle, John Stuart Mill, and Carl Hempel to elaborate his own realist theory . . . . The volume succeeds admirably in being accessible to undergraduates and helpful to specialists in the field."
From the reviews of the cloth edition:
""Explaining Explanation is what many books claim to be, but few actually are a book that is both accessible to the advanced undergraduate' and of interest to professional philosophers. It presents a good overview of a wide spectrum of work on explanation with admirable clarity and concision . . . Ruben has interesting and insightful things to say about every topic he discusses."
