This book is deep and genuinely interesting...this is a book that deserves respect and applause. Alessandro Capone Needless to say, I find Stanley's book extremely important and powerfully argued. I recommend it highly, not only to those interested in recent debates over the semantics of knowledge attributions, for whom it is absolutely essential, but also to anyone with a healthy interest in what knowledge is - and indeed to anybody who enjoys well-executed, insightful philosophy books Keith DeRose, Mind Jason Stanleys Knowledge and Practical Interests is a brilliant book, combining insights about knowledge with a careful examination of how recent views in epistemology fit with the best of recent linguistic semantics. Gilbert Harman, Princeton University Stanley's book ... is a model of clarity and showcases one of philosophy's brightest young things at his best ... a great, wide-ranging, must-read book ... This is a book that is rich with insight and argument and which has a broad philosophical reach. These features of the book by themselves ensure that it is essential reading. Duncan Pritchard, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
