this work is an ideal entry to Robert Neville s wide-ranging thought as a whole Most every page is rich in detail and enormously suggestive. The work is open enough in style to invite a reader to make corrections that are true to that person s experiential contexts. Yet it is persuasive enough that most readers will find themselves carrying over much of value and importance from the text to their own understanding of religion and reality. American Journal of Theology and Philosophy
a provocative book, written from a Peircean perspective, and it puts the lie to the claim that metaphysical claims and pragmatism do not mix. International Journal for Philosophy of Religion
This compilation of essays culled together from Neville s accomplished career offers an avenue for acquainting readers with some of his basic insights and contributions to the fields of philosophy and theology Frequently, such compilations fail to achieve a complementary whole, but nothing could be further from the case here. Divided into three parts realism and truth, realism in pragmatism, and realism in religion and metaphysics each part provides the occasion for the next. Religious Studies Review
Neville demonstrates great breadth of knowledge about both philosophy and theology in this work, and he develops his ideas in a creative and interesting way. CHOICE"
