'Nothing should henceforth be written on vagueness which fails to learn from this book. It should be read not only for its contribution to vagueness, but also for what it says about knowledge; for the purity of its style ... and as an example of philosophy at its very best.' - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science

'This is a marvellous book. Not for a long time have I read anything which was at the same time so easy and pleasant to read and so stimulating.' - Philosophical Books
