Abstract:

This collection, with essays by Graham H. Bird, Jaakko Hintikka, Ilkka
Niiniluoto, Jan Wolenski, will interest graduate students of the
philosophy of language and logic, as well as professional
philosophers, historians of analytic philosophy, and philosophically
inclined logicians.

Language, Truth and Knowledge brings together 11 new essays that offer
a wealth of insights on a number of Carnap's concerns and ideas. The
volume arose out of a symposium on Carnap's work at an international
conference held in Vienna in 2001.

The essays are written from a variety of perspectives: 
 + some essays aim at rebutting influential criticisms directed at
 Carnap's views;
 + others examine and assess his thought in the light of recent
 developments in the neurosciences;
 + still others are historical and describe the development of Carnap's
 thought;
 + they all shed light on the relation of this thought and different
 philosophical traditions.
These essays form a collection that will prove a valuable resource for
our understanding of the historic Carnap and the living philosophical
issues with which he grappled.
