"Puntel's Structure and Being is a rare work of integration and synthesis. A book conceived and executed in the grand tradition of philosophical systematization, it integrates treatments of a wide array of fundamental philosophical problems within a grand overarching design. Examining key theories and theses from the Anglo-American analytic and the Continental European traditions, it both expounds and exemplifies a holistic vision of philosophy that can be appreciated by philosophers of both traditions alike."
--Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh
"Through sustained critical engagement with the leading philosophical positions taken in the past century on both sides of the Atlantic, Structure and Being effectively challenges current conventional wisdom by elaborating a formidable theoretical framework for a structural systematic philosophy--an ongoing, self-grounding yet nonfoundationalist attempt to determine the nature of beings as completely and comprehensively as possible."
--Daniel Dahlstrom, Boston University
"Structure and Being is rich and challenging. In an age in which the narrow specialist has taken center stage, Puntel has returned to an older tradition: that of the philosopher who attempts to understand the whole. For this he should be congratulated."
--David Roochnik, Boston University
"Lorenz Puntel's systematic structural philosophy is a bold and challenging attempt to overcome the contemporary fragmentation of philosophical discourse. Its depth and breadth regarding issues of logic, epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics are unparalleled, as is the ease with which the author moves between so-called analytic and continental positions. Both the overall project as a new comprehensive metaphysics and the particular arguments developed demand a serious response from philosophers today."
--Hans-Herbert Koegler, University of North Florida
