Ernest LePore, who must count by now as a leading entrepreneur of analytical philosophy, has edited the proceedings of the 1984 Rutgers conference on the philosophy of Donald Davidson. The scale of that conference is reflected in the size of this volume, which contains 28 substantial papers. And this is but half the story: a companion volume of similar size, drawn from the same conference, and dealing with Davidson’s essays on actions and events, was published simultaneously with Truth and Interpretation. Despite the size, many of the papers in the volume under review repay careful study: the book is a fitting tribute to the distinguished writings it discusses.
