9780631191780: Perspectives on Quine (Philosophers and their Critics)

Perspectives on Quine, now available in paperback, is a collection of twenty-one new essays dealing with the thought of America's most distinguished living philosopher, Willard Van Orman Quine. After the editors' brief introduction to Quine's thought, the volume opens with an important new essay by Quine entitled Three Indeterminacies. The essays that follow, written by leading philosophers, are rich with insights into a wide variety of Quine's concerns ranging from logic and set theory to natural language, truth, evidence, natural kinds, naturalized epistemology, and much more. Each essay concludes with a summary and response from Quine himself.

Review:

"The elegance, economy, wit and precision of his writings are among the chief glories of modern philosophy ... By virtue of intellectual power, range and fertility of ideas and brilliance of presentation, Quine is the most distinguished and influential of living philosophers." P. F. Strawson, London Review of Books

"Quine pursues his philosophical vision with an uncompromising consistency of purpose that makes his doctrines impossible to ignore. You either go with him or define your position in reaction to his. And this is one mark of a great philosopher." Colin McGinn, Journal of Philosophy

"{Quine is} ... the most distinguished American recruit to logical empiricism, probably the contemporary American philosopher most admired in the profession, and an original philosophical thinker of the first rank." New York Review of Books

"Through little known outside academia, Quine is the most distinguished American-born philosopher since John Dewey. His views have been enormously influential and, to this day, continue to generate heated and fruitful controversy." Martin Gardner, The Boston Globe
