book cover


For financial assistance, I am grateful to support from the National University of Singapore Start Up Grant (WBS No: R-241-000-126-133) in helping to make this book possible. It has been a pleasure to work with my editor at Open Book Publishers, Alessandra Tosi. More generally, I am delighted to be a part of this exciting Open Access press, whose vision for academic publishing I share. Philosophically, thanks to Martin Davies for extended, and stimulating, discussion, both during and after my time at Oxford. As well as learning about the topics considered in this book from Martin, I learnt how to become a better philosopher. Thanks also to other philosophers who have helped along the way. Further thanks to Chris Tucker (who, after the fact, disclosed his status as referee for this book) for extended written comments, and discussion. Finally, and most importantly, thanks to my family for their support during the writing of this book: Jackie, Edna, and Johnny (and crew).
