Review of Metaphysics 54 (4):943-944 (2001)

In my view there were two great under-appreciated geniuses of twentieth century philosophy. The first was D. C. Williams. The second was a man who greatly admired Williams, David Stove. Both have paid for having conservative views and presenting them polemically, but this is a great pity, for not only are their political views worth listening to, their nonpolitical work is brilliant, more so, I suspect, than even some of their aficionados realize. Now Stove’s following is on the up, with the release of this compilation from a new admirer, Roger Kimball.
