Recensioner i media

'The essays reprinted here show the extraordinary originality and great interest of Anscombe's work in action theory and moral philosophy. Any reader must surely see how far, in this area, she outdistances her contemporaries.' Philippa Foot 'In the latter half of the twentieth century Anscombe could hold her own with any philosopher in the world, male or female.' Anthony Kenny 'It is difficult to exaggerate the interest and importance of making available Elizabeth Anscombe's unpublished writings and some of her published work that it has been difficult to get hold of recently. The editors and the publishers have done philosophy a great service.' Alasdair MacIntyre 'Truly one of the great philosophers of the twentieth century.' Hilary Putnam 'Elizabeth Ancsombe thought deeply, wrote beautifully, and was never taken in by pretence.' Roger Scruton
