BOSTON STUDIES IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE Volume: 210

Quine is one of the twentieth century's most important and
influential philosophers. The essays in this collection are by some of
the leading figures in their fields and they touch on the most recent
turnings in Quine's work. The book also features an essay by Quine
himself, and his replies to each of the papers. Questions are raised
concerning Quine's views on knowledge: observation, holism, truth,
naturalized epistemology; about language: meaning, the indeterminacy
of translation, conjecture; and about the philosophy of logic:
ontology, singular terms, vagueness, identity, and intensional
contexts. Given Quine's preeminent position, this book must be of
interest to students of philosophy in general, Quine aficionados, and
most particularly to those working in the areas of epistemology,
ontology, philosophies of language, of logic, and of science.
