Reviews

'The editors of this volume have put together a fine collection of papers. The chapters are consistently very good. Anyone doing scholarship on Davidson will find much of interest in here (especially the essays by D'Oro and Sandis, Hutto, and Heil). The same is true of philosophers working on mental causation. But this book will be of the most value to philosophers working in action theory, particularly those working on debates over reason-explanations.' - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
