About the Authors
  • The eleven essays in this volume cover all the central topics of W.V. Quine's philosophy. Quine (1908-2000) was perhaps the most distinguished analytic philosopher of the later half of the twentieth century. His celebrated attack on the analytic/synthetic tradition heralded a major shift away from the views of language descended from logical positivism. His most important book, Word and Object, introduced the concept of indeterminacy of radical translation, a bleak view of the nature of the language with which we ascribe thoughts and beliefs to ourselves and others.

    • Quine is the most important analytic philosopher of latter part of twentieth century and volumes on twentieth-century figures in this series do well
    • As with all other philosophy companions it is systematic, comprehensive and accessible

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The Cambridge Companion to Quine, like others in the series, would be a welcomed contribution to the shelves of philosophy students and professors alike. The only noticeable difference between this volume and others in the series is that, because of the interlocking nature of Quine's views, there is (happily in this case) more overlap between articles. Gibson's introduction to the Companion provides a brief biography of Quine's journey...then offers a brief but nonetheless brilliant exposition of Quine's systematic philosophy. The Companion's articles are generally of high quality also." - Aran Canes and Staff, Nathaniel Goldberg, Mount Saint Mary's University
