"Social Conventions is an important contribution to scholars from at least two disciplines--philosophy and law. . . . [T]his book should interest anyone wanting to gain a better and deeper understanding of human linguistic and moral behavior."---Dana Riesenfeld, Pragmatics Cognition
"This is certainly an important addition to this rather narrow body of academic scholarship." * Choice *
"This timely monograph should stimulate further philosophical studies of conventions in general and of their various manifestations in human affairs."---Kevin Toh, Ethics
