Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'An absorbing collection of interviews with 16 of the nation's rising stars.. .A great deal of ability is on show in New British Philosophy." - The New Statesman

'There is a new diversity in British academic philosophy - it doesn't just consist of white men puffing pipes and meditating on predicate calculus, but embraces feminism, and offers new treatments of age-old questions about political obligation, aesthetics and consciousness.' - The Guardian
