Excerpt

We would like to offer our thanks to the following people for their help in making this book possible. First, to the interviewees themselves, who did much more than just sit down and chat for a bit. Second, to the many philosophers who provided the recommendations for interviewees. Third, to the ever enthusiastic Routledge team: Tony Bruce, Muna Khogali and Aine Duffy. Fourth, the anonymous referees whose comments were valued even when ultimately ignored. Finally, to the friends, family, readers and supporters of The Philosophers' Magazine, whose general support has enabled us to work on this project.
