It is always difficult to review something which is broad in concept and rich in contents. Historical Ontology is certainly one of these. Therefore, what I am going to do in this review is both selective and deductive. I first select what according to me the most essential parts of the book, then deduce some ideas which appear to be in sequence to the parts I select. They of course do not form a systematic structure, but a very limited reflection on a book which is characterized by a collection of papers manifesting nonetheless an essential part of Hacking's philosophy.
