Alternative formats available from:
For the first time, this volume presents a series of critical and constructive studies in the philosophy of J. N. Findlay. His contributions to both historical and systematic philosophy are examined by outstanding authors in the field, many of whom are his former students and colleagues. The value of these essays is heightened by Findlay's own contributions: two autobiographical chapters detail the evolution of his thought and relationships, and in a final section of comments, he evaluates and responds to the studies in this collection.

"Findlay eminently deserves to have such a volume; the people who are contributing are excellent; the topics covered show his and their wide range. " — Paul Weiss
"The topic of this book is very significant. Findlay has gone his own way, reacted or responded to philosophical fashions, yet never been swept away. Often seeming on the sidelines, he was continuously preparing a set of positions which now must be given serious consideration. " — William Reese
