About the Author

Tom Stoneham is Professor of Philosophy at the University of York. Keith Allen is a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of York.


'Keith Allen and Tom Stoneham's anthology is a very welcome addition to the growing literature on this central topic in the modern period. Unlike its closest predecessor ... the work included here goes far beyond the rationalists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.'
