"This book addresses a set of epistemic developments important throughout the academy. The range of contributors is excellent, and their collective prestige will attract more than a few readers all by itself. A further advantage is that the range of fields addressed makes the collection interesting to scholars in a wide variety of disciplines. " — John S. Nelson, University of Iowa
