Brutal book reviews in philosophy


211 day(s) ago

I'm looking for examples of brutal book reviews in philosophy that are published in legitimate journals. These two come to mind:

Colin McGinn, "Review of Honderich," The Philosophical Review 116 (2007): 474-477 (

Nina Strohminger, "The Meaning of Disgust: A Refutation," Emotion Review 6.3 (2014): 214-216 (

Can you suggest others?
