WOLFSDORF, D. C.,
Oxford University Press, 2019. 296p. Hardback. Wolfsdorf's impressive study is a linguistically sophisticated and philosophically motivated treatment of the various meanings of 'good' and 'goodness'. It brings classic ideas from philosophers such as Geach and Ziff into contact with some of the most sophisticated recent linguistic theories concerning ambiguity, multidimensional gradability, context sensitivity, syntactic determination, and mass noun denotation. I highly recommend it for value theorists interested in expanding their understanding of the rich complexity packed into the core evaluative terms of English and also for anyone studying the meaning of 'good' and 'goodness.
