Overview

This important book will do much to reestablish the significance of Thomas Reid for philosophy today. Nicholas Wolterstorff has produced the first systematic account of Reid's epistemology. Relating Reid's philosophy to presentday epistemological discussions the author demonstrates how it is at once remarkably timely, relevant, and provocative. There is no competing book that both uncovers the deep pattern of Reid's thought and relates it to contemporary philosophical debate. It must be read by historians of philosophy as well as all philosophers concerned with epistemology and the philosophy of mind.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Wolterstorff strikes the right balance between precision and fidelity to Reid's text, and a briskly-paced treatment that enables the reader to keep the main lines of Reid's thought in mind without having to be constantly reminded of them. This, along with the book's manageable size and eminent readability, should assure the book a wide audience, including a substantial "crossover" group between history, epistemology, and history of philosophy." Stephen Darwall, University of Michigan
