The dialogue, combining informality with elements of drama, has been a favored form with philosophers since Plato; it lays bare the discussion, argument, and criticism which are part of the very subject-matter of philosophy. In this book some of the most distinguished philosophers in present-day Britain carry on the best traditions of the form. A.J.

The enduring fascination of his works arises not only from his singular fusion of musical innovation and theatrical daring, but also from his largely overlooked engagement with the boldest investigations of modern philosophy."
