Each chapter provides clear exposition of a central work and explores the ways in which other philosophers have responded to Strawson's initiatives. Brown shows how Strawson's philosophical approach has been to seek better understanding of particular concepts or concept-groups, drawing out parallels and connections among them that shed new light over an apparently familiar landscape. Strawson's central thoughts in logic and language are shown to have remained constant throughout his career, while he has extended their application across a broad range of philosophical topics.
