An impressively wide-ranging, meticulously argued,
thought-provoking book...Elgin's True Enough is a philosophical
tour-de-force of incredible breadth. -British Journal for the
Philosophy of Science
Elgin's project will show that we get on just fine, intellectually as well as practically, by replacing truth and knowledge with "true enough" and understanding. -Journal of Philosophy
An original, fruitful blend of epistemology and philosophy of science...this is a wonderful book, written in an elegant and informal style, and replete with stimulating ideas on a wide range of subjects. -Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
