Editorial Reviews

“A fascinating, original, deeply suggestive work, written with haunting power and beauty.”—Ben Rogers, Financial Times, on I See a Voice“Jonathan Rée has given us a rich and engrossing story of ideas as lived and felt. His book mounts an invigorating challenge to conventional histories of philosophy, and deserves to become a classic.”—Leo Damrosch  “This book is an extraordinary achievement, a magnum opus in every sense, and remarkable in its combination of erudition and accessible prose. We will never be able to think of English philosophy in quite the same way again.”—David Wood, Vanderbilt University  “A superb achievement, Rée has written an exceptional book: adventurous in conception, finely argued, beautifully written and most of all, a major redefinition of the task of philosophy.”— Alain de Botton, on I See a Voice"This book is a game-changer. It fills a giant hole that we did not know was there. We will never be able to think of English philosophy in quite the same way again."—Professor David Wood
