Summary A collection of fourteen original essays on a variety of philosophical topics by some of the most talented younger American philosophers, specially commissioned for this volume. Previous anthologies in this series have consisted of contributions by philosophers of established reputation. By choosing now to present to a wide public the work of young philosophers still on their way to "the top", the editor hopes to enable the common reader as well as the specialist to become acquainted with some of the best of the lively and penetrating work of philosophical investigation of a younger generation.--From publisher description.
