Editorial Reviews

`This is a wonderful example of an emerging genre ... Helpfully, Hylton's treatment is both sympathetic enough to help us see how Russell could have been attracted to idealism and critical enough to make the later reaction against if plausible ... Hylton ... wisely focuses on those aspectsthat are most helpful to the intended audience - philosophers ...

There are many ways to do philosophy and many ways to convey its history. Here is one wayto do them both - and to do them both well.'The Philosophical Review
