This collection of essays offers diverse and original ways in which to view their relationship. If there is no way to do so, even by bending over backwards, that reinforces his position. Arrington; Hans-Johann GlockReview by: Robert KirkThe Philosophical Quarterly, Vol. A big event in 1990s was Brandom giving a first full fledged account of he credits Dummett and Sellars as key links in transmission from Wittgenstein. Ultimately, it stems from difference in purpose: Quine was more concerned with accommodating scientific practice and scientific language, and sceptical about the prospects of a semantic theory for natural languages.

Moreover, the account of inference for complex sentences can be given based on truth tables in terms of truth of elementary sentences. These remarks tie the irrationality of a violation of a norm of reasoning to its producing irrational action. Post focuses on attitudes to science a recurrent topic in these essays. This unique study brings together for the first time two of the most important philosophers of this century. Glock's chief claim is that 'Quine's method of translation cannot yield even the meagre results it is supposed to, without tacitly smuggling in either a prior understanding of the natives, or hermeneutical methods and inten- sional notions which he disowns' p. Never before have these two thinkers been compared - and commentators' opinions on their relationship differ greatly.

A good review is , see also. Roughly, realists see meanings as some kind of entities, although there is a wide range of opinions as to their nature. An understanding of the similarities and differences between the thought of Wittgenstein and of Quine is essential if we are to have a full picture of contemporary philosophy.

For Plato and Frege they are ideal forms occupying a separate realm, for Aristotle and Russell they are invariances of sensible experience, and in informational semantics of Fodor and Dretske they are correlations between the brain and external reality. Are the views of Wittgenstein and Quine on method and the nature of philosophy comparable or radically opposed?

Several of the other essays contain much that is anticipated by Hacker extremely closely in one case: a sentence from one of his footnotes reappears almost unchanged in another contributor's main text. Never before have these two thinkers been compared - and commentators' opinions on their relationship differ greatly. He thinks Quine's thought is vitiated by reliance on outdated behaviouristic psychology, and Wittgenstein's by ignorance of the kind of science that could have helped his work. Are the views of Wittgenstein and Quine on method and the nature of philosophy comparable or radically opposed? Douglas Winblad is the only other contributor who claims kinship between Wittgenstein and Quine, notably in their treatments of scepticism. This unique study brings together for the first time two of the most important philosophers of this century. Nevertheless he says at one point that 'betting money when there is no chance of winning - which is what people who violate the conjunction principle are committing themselves to doing - is irrational behaviour. I suggest he has largely missed the point.

But a majority of the contributors here are Wittgensteinians who show little sympathy for Quine's projects and seem more or less 'uncomprehending' of them. I saw no reason why Quine should have to say more than that you make an ontological commitment to the existence of so and sos by quanti- fying over so and sos, and that to talk about ontology is to talk about what there is. Arrington is Professor of Philosophy at Georgia State University. Ilham Dilman, however, sets Wittgenstein against a Quine I could not recog- nize, guilty of blatant nonsense: 'The truth, I hazard, is that while Quine regards all reality as theoretical, he also regards everything theoretical as unreal' p. But why should that be an objection? Roger Gibson notes the range of applications of Quine's 'moderate holism'. Thanks for contributing an answer to Philosophy Stack Exchange! Does Wittgenstein's concept of language engender that of Quine, or threaten its philosophical foundations? If this is right, then many of Stein's points against the evolutionary argument will, at the very least, need to be modified, since pragmatic considerations will turn out to be what are important for the rationality of principles of reasoning. Not that I think the authors have failed to take their task seriously.

He does mention the rationality of action, but says he will discuss it only as it is relevant to the rationality of reasoning. He is the author of Rationalism, Realism and Relativism 1989. They both criticize a certain approach to semantic theory that can be called realism about meaning. Although I welcomed Post's attempt to move the discussion on, I was puzzled by some of his interpretations of both Wittgenstein and Quine. Several treat the collection as an opportunity to pit Wittgenstein against Quine. Although Hacker thinks that 'in the confrontation between the two philosophers it is Wittgenstein whose arguments carry the day' he is comparatively judicious, remarking that 'a proper refutation of Quine would require a book in its own right' p.

Does Wittgenstein's concept of language engender that of Quine, or threaten its philosophical foundations? Are the views of Wittgenstein and Quine on method and the nature of philosophy comparable or radically opposed? He hopes that 'we can begin to understand the complex relations between Quine and Wittgenstein by comparing their reactions to Carnap' p. This collection of essays offers diverse and original ways in which to view their relationship. The irony is that in his late period he came to where Quine started, concluding that nuances of context and application make any semantic theory of natural language hopeless. For all enquiries, please contact Herb Tandree Philosophy Books directly - customer service is our primary goal. Stein has provided a great many points of departure for further exploration into both sides of the central question 'Are we rational? Inference is treated as a primitive, and truth is seen as not only deflated as in all pragmatist accounts, but a defective notion.
