W. J. Mander teaches philosophy at Harris Manchester College. He has published extensively on the history of British Idealism.
Mandel's book is to be commended. I hope it will have a wide circulation and will stimulate many to read Norris's own writings. * Richard Acworth, British Journal for the History of Philosophy * This book is the first of its kind in English in almost thirty years... offers rich and detailed discussions of Norris' metaphysics, epistemology, philosophical theology, theory of love, and his controversy with Locke over the nature of ideas... an important read. * Lawrence Nolan, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews * W. J. Mander argues not only that John Norris of Bemerton (1657-1711) was a 'penetrating critic' of his contemporary John Locke, but that his writings played a central role in the English thought of the day. * John P. Wright, Times Literary Supplement * In this excellent study of Norris, W. J. Mander gives a careful and comprehensive account of Norris's metaphysical, epistemological, theological, and ethical views... highly readable. * Charles J. McCracken Mind 119 *
