Product Description


“There’s a reasonable chance that people will be reading [Zwicky’s] work a century from now. This is something that one says of only a very small number of philosophers.” Dr. James Young, Chair, Dept. of Philosphy, University of Victoria

“It is one that should be read, considered and then reread, since there is no doubt that what Zwicky has given us is a book of wisdom.” Anne Simpson, Halifax Chronicle Herald

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
