informative, elucidating book. It makes one think and then think again. I have learned and then learned again on points large and small, central and tangential. This is what good philosophy is all about: turning the lights on in dark areas of the life of the mind. Strawson is high wattage, and page after page is sheer, honest, forthright illumination of the issues. I now look forward to reading more by him, a lot more.
