Oxford University Press, 2016. 304p. Hardback. Series: Mind Association Occasional Series. This volume of thirteen commissioned chapters and an introduction provides state of the art contributions to both the philosophical discussion of relations and our understanding of the history of this discussion. It is a model of how historical scholarship and contemporary philosophy can complement each other. Part of the success of the approach here lies in its subtlety. The interconnections between the history and the current philosophy are not belabored: the contemporary work is not dragged down with discussion of precedents and the historical issues are developed on their own terms and without the imposition of anachronism. Thematic interconnections emerge organically, and the resulting whole is satisfying. Phil Corkum, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online |a 04/08/2016 (Publisher's information). Condition: New.
