`One of the virtues of Galipeau's worthy book is that he does not usually attempt to make Berlin more systematic than he is ... Galipeau's book is most useful for the way in which he arranges arguments from different parts of Berlin's writings into topics.'
Times Literary Supplement
`Galipeau painstakingly exposes a thinker well ahead of his time, sensitive and nuanced, who walks a defensible line between the unhelpful excesses of contemporary debate. I also think this line is the best one to follow.'
The Literary Review of Canada
`...fine introduction to Berlin's philosophical pluralism around a common theme. Galipeau aptly captures the conversational style, exceptionally broad range and ebullient enthusiasms of the most engaging raconteur of all contemporary political thinkers.'
Political Studies
`Pleasantly written appreciation of Sir Isaiah Berlin's thought ... interesting - and persuasive - if it is read as an exploration of the relationship between Berlin's very personal and sometimes elusive intellectual point of view and the school of ideological thinking to which he happens to be most sympathetic ... I would encourage anyone interested in Berlin's moral and political thought to read this book.'
Canadian Journal of Political Science
`balanced and scholarly account of Berlin's thought'
John Horton, Keele University, History of Political Thought, Volume XVIII, Issue 1, Spring 1997
