"Haskell's method integrates the disciplinary priorities of historians into a style of discourse characteristic of philosophers, theologians, and political theorists... The community of specialists [in U.S. history] has no more thoughtful and conscientious student of its own epistemic authority than Thomas L. Haskell."

"A dozen essays, thoughtful and thought-provoking, by a distinguished intellectual historian and historical critic."

"The most sophisticated contribution by a historian to the contemporary debate over the nature of historical knowledge."

"Haskell's reputation as one of the foremost writers on topics in the philosophy of history is well deserved... A challenging read well worth the effort."

"Haskell provides a deeper understanding of the relationship between professional societies and authoritative knowledge and how this led to the rise of distinctive intellectual societies."
