Book Reviews

The book review list is currently CLOSED for submissions. Please check back soon.
Occasionally, I am approached by publishers or authors to review books. If I think they are suitable for the typical visitor to PhilosophyOnline, then I'll add them to the list. I usually have a large backlog of books to get through, so if you are an author/publisher with a book you'd like me to review, you're welcome to contact me, but bear in mind that it may take me some time to get to it. Sometimes I also review useful or interesting books that I come across in the course of my general reading, or highlight some of my favourite books. Mostly these are philosophical, but others may be fiction or non-fiction that has some philosophical interest. It's a mixed bag. Generally, I try to highlight what's good about a book, if I can, and so if there's nothing positive that I can say then I tend not to review it. A full list of my reviews can be found on, but the more recent ones are listed on the left.
