From Library Journal
This book has four parts: a brief intellectual autobiography of Strawson; 20 essays on main aspects of his philosophy, each followed by his reply to the author; a bibliography of works by and about him; and partial lists of his academic appointments and of honors awarded him. The essays cover his views on subjects like the nature of philosophy, reconciling apparently incompatible philosophical views, skepticism, the relationship between intention and speech acts, formal logic vis-a-vis semantic/pragmatic logic, reference and predication, determinism and responsibility, self-identity, perception, epistemology, induction, and truth. The essays are solid and the replies attentive and elegant. A valuable contribution to contemporary philosophy.?Robert Hoffman, York Coll., CUNY

This is an interesting anthology of articles and replies. Some of the more important articles here deal with Strawson's views in the philosophy of language (namely speech act theory) and in metaphysics.
Here are some highlights: R. Millikan, "Proper Function and Convention in Speech Acts," Haack, Between the Scylla and Charybdis of Apriorism" (excellent), McDowell, "Referring to Oneself," Blackburn, "Relativization and Truth," Pears, "Strawson on Freedom and Resentment," Putnam, "Strawson and Skepticism," and Searle, "Truth: A Reconsideration."
