Michael Luntley is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Warwick. He is the author of "Reason, Truth, and Self: the Postmodern Reconditioned" (1995), "The Meaning of Socialism" (1989), and "Language, Logic, and Experience: the Case for Anti-Realism" (1988).


"Luntley writes clearly...and defends his philosophical claims with arguments. The breadth and depth of his scholarship are impressive. This book should be in the library of any school where philosophy is studied." H. Pospesel, Choice "...lucid and engaging style...ability to cover well-trodden ground in a fresh and informative way...Luntley is to be commended for the scope of his project. He pursues the neo-Fregean methodology wherever it leads and many of the topics it leads him to are dealt with extremely well. Luntley is able to condense often difficult and complex material, making it accessible even to fairly novice readers, and providing new insights and outlooks which will be of benefit to all those with an interest in the...philosphy of mind and language."
