"Liliana Albertazzi's recent book presents Brentano's life and work in an unmatched synthesis of clarity and richness. [...] The book is fascinating because of its content, pleasurable because of its style, and unique in its cross-combination of historical and theoretical perspectives. [...] There are books that must be read and books that are a pleasure to read. This book is both."
Riccardo Manzotti, Institute of Human and Environmental Science, University of Language and Communication, Milan, Italy, in Mind & Matter Vol. 4(1), pp. 115-119
"I can vouch unequivocally for the rich conceptual rewards that await those with some background and interest in foundational issues concerning perception, language and philosophy of mind. The book should be essential reading for philosophers seeking a presentation of Brentano's work in English that does not come through the lens of analytic or continental philosophy."
Dhanraj Vishwanath, Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, USA, in TRENDS in Cognitive Sciences Vol. 10 No. 12, pp. 536-537
"Albertazzi's analysis of Brentano's work and the development of his thoughts is based on a thorough study of his work and on her extensive knowledge of the 19th century German scholars and philosophers in general. She gives many new and interesting insights in Brentano's thoughts and the book is worth the mental effort it demands."
