-Katia Chirkova, "Language
"Oswald Hanfling has written a lucid, painstaking, thorough and comprehensive defense of a certain method in philosophy, a method used, consciously or not, by many philosophers, derided by some, and mainly associated in our century with the names of Austin and Wittgenstein."
-Sir Peter Strawson, Oxford University
"Hanfling has illuminating things to say not only about Plato and Descartes, Berkeley and Hume, but also about Grice and Quine, Kripke and the Churchlands. Hanfling's book constitutes a remarkably rich achievement. It is a long time since I last read a work of philosophy from which I have learnt so much."
-Antony Flew, "Philosophical Investigations
