"I know many professors whose students would benefit a great deal from the type of book Washburn and his colleagues are putting together....The essays on Plato and Confucius were superlative - really clear, faithful to the spirit of each philosopher, fascinating, and beautifully written. The Kant essay was excellent...." - Douglas A. Gilmour, University of the Incarnate Word
"I found that the writers made the material very interesting....This text is a page-turner." - Christopher Trogan, The Julliard School
