Editorial Reviews

`This collection brings together Dummett's mature thoughts on topics with which he has wrestled for years, along with reflections on a few new themes and applications of his ideas to the contemporary literature. The papers all bear the mark of the power, depth, and originality characteristicof Dummett's work. This book is essential for anyone seriously interested in the philosophy of language or metaphysics. Those who choose to ignore it because they dislike its conclusions will do so to their disadvantage.'Australasian Journal of Philosophy
