9780674326361: From Stimulus to Science
Críticas:

Here in elegantly compact form is the world-view of the person many would regard as the greatest living philosopher...This magisterial little book offers newcomers a short and gem-studded path to the views of a great thinker, and it will be greeted with affection and pleasure by old hands. -- R. M. Sainsbury Times Literary Supplement This book will demonstrate why philosophy is an endlessly fascinating, enduring enterprise. Here we have wonder, conjecture, analysis, and discovery. If you get the chance, share the brilliance, daring, and courage of a first-rate philosopher exploring the human condition through logic and language. -- John Shosky Free Inquiry In the course of From Stimulus to Science, Quine touches on and clarifies his position as regards many of the subjects dealt with in a less accommodating fashion in earlier works--observation sentences, reference, reification, truth and disquotation, meaning, translation and interpretation, semantic ascent, and quotation. The excitement is real and sustained with great verve throughout this latest offering. -- Max de Gaynesford Radical Philosophy

Reseña del editor:

W. V. Quine is one of the most eminent philosophers alive today. Now in his mid-eighties he has produced a sharp, sprightly book that encapsulates the whole of his philosophical enterprise, including his thinking on all the key components of his epistemological stance--especially the value of logic and mathematics. New readers of Quine may have to go slowly, fathoming for themselves the richness that past readers already know lies between these elegant lines. For the faithful there is much to ponder. In this short book, based on lectures delivered in Spain in 1990, Quine begins by locating his work historically. He provides a lightning tour of the history of philosophy (particularly the history of epistemology), beginning with Plato and culminating in an appreciative sketch of Carnap's philosophical ambitions and achievements. This leads, in the second chapter, to an introduction to Quine's attempt to naturalize epistemology, which emphasizes his continuities with Carnap rather than the differences between them. The next chapters develop the naturalistic story of the development of science to take account of how our conceptual apparatus is enhanced so that we can view the world as containing re-identifiable objects. Having explained the role of observation sentences in providing a checkpoint for assessing scientific theories, and having despaired of constructing an empirical criterion to determine which sentences are meaningful, Quine in the remaining chapters takes up a variety of important issues about knowledge. He concludes with an extended treatment of his views about reference and meaning and his attitudes toward psychological and modal notions. The presentation is distinctive, and the many small refinements of detail and formulation will fascinate all who know Quine's philosophy.
