Industry Reviews

`Review from previous edition This book is a splendid tour de force, one which should be read by every philosopher...' Alan Weir, Philosophical Quarterly `clever, resourceful, undogmatic, unpretentious, often sensible and usually clear over a wide range of issues' Timothy Williamson, British Journal for the Philosophy of Science `highly entertaining and provocative... an engaging and instructive tour through some of the most perplexing features of our own conceptual finitude...' A. W. Moore, Times Literary Supplement `Graham Priest combines a deep philosophical appreciation of fundamental logical issues with a marvelously informed reading of both the history of philosophy and contemporary texts. His work is ambitious and insightful... The book is an ambitious attempt to do important philosophical work across major borders - borders of the formal and philosophical, the historical and the contemporary, the Analytical and the Continental traditions. In [this] regard it is a resounding success.' Patrick Grim, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research
