"The volumes are handsomely produced and carefully edited, ... For the first time we have available in an intelligible form the writings of one of the greatest philosophers of the past hundred years... " -- The Times Literary Supplement

..". an extremely handsome and impressive book; it is an equally impressive piece of scholarship and editing." -- Man and World
