About the Author

David J. Buller is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University.


"The debate about functions has become rather complex, and with articles being published hither and yon, it's been very difficult to follow. Buller has selected very readable and important essays, ones that track the course of the debate quite nicely. I was delighted to have them all collected, edited, and organized for me." -Barbara L. Horan, Georgia Southern University
