W.V.O. Quine is one of the most influential of contemporary philosophers, whose work has ranged broadly across a great number of topics and issues in a career spanning some fifty years. In this collection a group of distinguished philosophers offer a sustained critical evaluation of the full range of Quinets writings. Amongst the topics addressed are interpretation, epistemology, ontology, modality, and mathematical truth. This is very much a QUOTE state of the art UNQUOTE collection that will influence all future discussion of Quine.The contributors include: George Boolos, H-N Castaneda, Donald Davidson, Umberto Eco, Dagfinn Follesdal, James Higginbotham, Charles Parsons, Hilary Putnam, Barry Stroud, and Bas van Frassen. However, Quine is given the last word , responding to the essays in the final contribution.
