‘Keynes and Philosophy is a significant contribution to the new Keynesian fundamentalism. For the first time many of the newly emerging perspectives on Keynes’s early philosophical thought are brought together in a single volume. The analytical depth and divisive nature of the debates are clearly evident. The volume conveys the controversial excitement within the newest field of Keynesian scholarship.’
– Bill Gerrard, University of York, UK
