Fate Time and Language

Okay, so there's a moment where I get a little ill thinking about the posthumous frenzy to publish every piece of toilet paper David Foster Wallace shat on, and at first review this book may fall into that catagory: it presents Wallace's 70-page essay defending free will and critiquing Richard Taylor's work and surrounds it in 170 pages of related philosophical essays, histories and, appropriately, footnotes. HOWEVER! This book is good! The arguments are compelling and the auxiliary essays actually help you keep track of what's going on and what it means. I'm not any kind of advocate for DFW's sainthood or anything, but I do think he was an incredibly smart and articulate author and this volume is certainly testament to a job well argued and cohesively presented. -EF
