"Cogent and worth reading - particularly the essays by Massimo Pigliucci and Jessica Wilson. Also notable is the fine essay by Myisha Cherry, who argues forcefully that philosophers need to "leave the shade" and express their views clearly in accessible public debate. Hear, hear!" - Barbara Ellen Hannan, The Philosopher's Magazine.
