9780199608577: Constructing the World
Review:

Constructing the World is a work of major philosophical importance that will be of interest to philosophers of just about every stripe. It is extremely ambitious. And yet even with all the territory it ranges over, the argumentation is consistently careful and rigorous. ( Justin Tiehen, Philosophy)

Chalmers' influence in philosophy and consciousness studies is unquestionable. ( Thomas W. Polger, The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science)

Chalmers' book is monumental in its length and its extraordinary scope. I think it's a safe bet that it will also be monumental in its influence. Chalmers' book is sure to dominate future discussions of apriority and Fregean sense - and with good reason: it is fascinating, well-argued and highly original. If you'll excuse a reviewers' cliché, Constructing the World is required reading for philosophers interested in epistemology or the foundations of semantics. ( Tom Donaldson, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 164 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. David Chalmers develops a picture of reality on which all truths can be derived from a limited class of basic truths. The picture is inspired by Rudolf Carnap s construction of the world in Der Logische Aufbau Der Welt. Carnap s Aufbau is often seen as a noble failure, but Chalmers argues that a version of the project can succeed. With the right basic elements and the right derivation relation, we can indeed construct the world. The focal point of Chalmers project is scrutability: the thesis that ideal reasoning from a limited class of basic truths yields all truths about the world. Chalmers first argues for the scrutability thesis and then considers how small the base can be. The result is a framework in metaphysical epistemology : epistemology in service of a global picture of the world. The scrutability framework has ramifications throughout philosophy. Using it, Chalmers defends a broadly Fregean approach to meaning, argues for an internalist approach to the contents of thought, and rebuts W.V. Quine s arguments against the analytic and the a priori. He also uses scrutability to analyze the unity of science, to defend a sort of conceptual metaphysics, and to mount a structuralist response to skepticism. Based on Chalmers s 2010 John Locke lectures, Constructing the World opens up debate on central philosophical issues concerning knowledge, language, mind, and reality.
