"Bernstein is at his best in this collection: penetrating, insightful, and lively; seeing the main issue where it is often obscured by side-questions; making the vital connections with other writers and alternative formulations."—Charles Taylor

"A thoughtful guide to the current debate about 'post-analytic' philosophy."—Ethics
