This book gives an illuminating account of significant features of von Wright's later work while showing philosophers wrestling on their own with philosophical issues central to his investigations. The six essays in part I are penetrating discussions of his changing views of norms, his claims about the varieties of goodness, his account of action, and his standpoint on the nature of future contingents. Part II contains von Wright's "Logic and Philosophy in the Twentieth Century" with commentary from diverse points of view by seven distinguished philosopher-logicians, who offer a rich feast of reflection on the role logic might play in philosophy in the 21st century.
