LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2002. 280pp looks unused ship anywhere. Norris discusses Putnam's protracted engagement with various forms of anti-realist doctrine (notably Michael Dummett's); with Wittgenstein's communitarian thinking about language-games or meaning as use; with Nelson Goodman's strong-constructivist account of our various 'ways of worldmaking'; and with Quine's widely influential statements concerning ontological relativity. He also offers some incisive commentary on Putnam's writing about conceptual problems in the interpretation of quantum mechanics. Throughout his book, Norris makes a point of placing Putnam's work in a wider philosophical context, and relating it to various current debates in epistemology and philosophy of science. Norris's study will be welcomed for its clear-headed treatment of the issues and, particularly, for his willingness like Putnam to take full account of opposed viewpoints while maintaining a vigorously argued commitment to the values of open rational debate and truth-seeking enquiry. (Publishers notes.). Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
