"This is a wonderful collection of papers on the important and influential thought of Barry Stroud. While Stroud will probably always be best known for his appreciation of the significance of skeptical arguments, he has written on a wide range of topics, and the authors in this collection advance discussion on many of the diverse issues raised in Stroud's workEL I haven't come anywhere near to doing justice to the many quality papers in this volume. I recommend
it to anyone who is interested in Stroud's work, and that should be anyone interested in philosophy."--Richard Fumerton, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
