The aim of the series is to bring together important recent writing in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly. The editor of each volume contributes an introductory essay on the items chosen and on the questions with which they deal. A selective bibliography is appended as a guide to further reading.

The articles are all reader-friendly, following the editors aim of an open and discussion-orientated style...The writers assume an interest in their readers and, without patronising, they generally engage it. Thus, the difficult becomes not a barrier but a challenge. The collection, through its scope and quality, will be a standard for some time to come. * The Times Higher Education Supplement *
