Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With its excellent contributors writing on topical issues of disagreement, this is a very welcome collection. It will attract much interest and should enhance the ongoing debates concerning those issues."

Ernest Sosa, Rutgers University

“The essays are uniformly lucid, and the argumentative moves that are considered are well handled. Overall, the essays make a solid contribution to the ongoing disagreements about disagreement…”

Guy Longworth, University of Warwick, UK
