Title: Knowledge, Language and Logic: Questions for Quine
Edited By: Petr Kotatko
Alex Orenstein
URL: http://www.wkap.nl/book.htm/0-7923-5986-0
Description:

uine 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 uine's work. The book also features an essay by uine himself, and his replies to each of the papers. uestions are raised concerning uine'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 uine's preeminent position, this book must be of interest to students of philosophy in general, uine aficionados, and most particularly to those working in the areas of epistemology, ontology, philosophies of language, of logic, and of science.
