Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Overall, the individual contributions to this anthology should be very interesting to those working on or with the relevant forms of contrastivism, to those who work on contrastivism about some G and wonder how contrastivism about some F might work, and finally to a more general readership who wants to find out what contrastivism is and what one can do with it. The general topic is certainly important and worth the attention. It will be interesting to see what further developments and applications (in aesthetics? Practical reasoning?) contrastivists will propose and to see more about how contrastivism compares with contrasting, alternative views.'Peter Baumann, Swarthmore College, USA in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
