Product description


His [Crane's] discussion throughout is both delightfully clear and eminently sensible-a quality that is rarer than it should be in view of much recent metaphysical extravagance in analytic philosophy...Tim's Crane's account is, all told, of considerable merit, and can be recommended to anyone concerned with the nature of the mind. (The Times Literary Supplement)

The Objects of Thought is a rich book, full of ideas and arguments. Making room for non-existent objects is a complicated business, and Crane covers a lot of ground very clearly. So this is a great book for anyone who wishes to get a sophisticated overview of the debate about non-existent objects. Because I have only been able to discuss a very small part of this complicated issue, my suggestion is to go out and read the book. (Analysis)

Ambitious, ingenious, and lucid ... Cranes excellent book ... has all sorts of interesting and insightful things to say about metaphysics, language, and intentionality. There is a great deal to be learned about these things from Objects of Thought, whether or not one ultimately agrees with the details of Cranes positive view. Crane also has a fluid clear style that makes his book a pleasure to read. So I recommend it very warmly, not merely to those interested in the nonexistent, but to all those interested in metaphysics and intentionality. (Anthony Everett, Mind)

ingenious, full of insight and wonderfully clearly written. (Niall Connolly, The Philosophical Quarterly)

elegant and original. (Pierre Jacob, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

Crane offers a solid contribution to the debate on the problem of intentional inexistence ... Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
