'We can ... applaud the arrival on the scene of Paolo Crivelli's ... book, which is the first monographic discussion of Aristotle's theory of truth. the line of investigation pursued by ... [Crivelli] is striking and powerful. ... [Crivelli's] book is without question an impressive and important work of scholarship. It is a book that deserves to become a standard study of the topic.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review '... this is a book that will be of interest not only to ancient philosophers but also to those working in modern philosophy of language and in metaphysics. It is densely argued and is written in a clear, economical style. Throughout, Crivelli combines the highest standards of scholarship with a concern to engage philosophically with the texts he discusses. ... Aristotle on Truth is rich in argument and deserves a response much more extensive than can be attempted in a review. It is a very impressive book, full of insightful textual analysis and penetrating philosophical discussion.' Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews '... an admirably clear and well informed account of the issues, in terms of both philosophy and scholarship. Its appendixes contain rich textual and logical examinations of particular claims ... Crivelli's book should provide a foundation for much productive debate.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy
