    "As J. H. S. Burleigh has remarked in his recent study, we find in Augustine's De libero arbitrio 'a work which is the highwater mark of his philosophical writing.'

    "This book presents philosophy by introducing the major philosophical topics, questions, positions, and philosophers. The different chapters are independent enough that they could be read in a different order if one so desired. However, everyone should start with the overview (section 1.0) in chapter 1, which will prepare you for your journey." — William F. Lawhead, Author, in the Preface (page iii)

Nevertheless a consistent part of the theory turned out to be quite successful as a theory of computations. It gave an imporatnt momentum to early recusion theory and more recently to computer science." — From the back cover
