Editorial Reviews

"As a fan of the Philosophy Bites podcast, I'm very pleased to see this publication of conversations with leading scholars on major figures in the history of philosophy. The result is not only a good introduction to that history, but a rare chance to read top-level philosophers speakingextemporaneously about the subjects they know best. Even regular listeners to the podcast will be glad to have this written version of highlights from the series." --Peter Adamson, King's College London
