"For the most part, the articles in this excellent new collection present attempts to rise to the challenges set by these three papers. Together, they show what difficult and far-reaching problems Benacerraf has raised, and what sophisticated thinking about the most fundamental questions in philosophy - questions of meaning, truth and knowledge - is needed even to begin to solve them."
