[Review of the book Words Without Objects: Semantics, Ontology, and Logic for Non-Singularity, by Haycock]Download
Introduction: Many languages mark a distinction which is commonly referred to as the “mass/count- distinction”; e.g., the distinction between the two occurrences of ‘hair’ in ‘There is hairin my soup’ and ‘There is a hair in my soup’. Often, the mass/count-distinction is drawn primarily with...
Introduction: The title of Hunter Brown's book, while not wholly inaccurate, barely hints at the book's real object: defense of William James' famous paper, \"The Will to Believe.\" For clarity's sake, a better title might have been \"The Will to Believe\" as an Introduction to James on Radical...
Introduction: Virtue Ethics and Professional Roles, by Justin Oakley and Dean Cocking, is in equal parts (i) a negative critique of contemporary neoKantian and utilitarian treatments of the virtues of character and relational goods, such as friendship, and (ii) a positive account of their...
Introduction: In the preface of this book, Copi explains that he has \"tried to give an account of the Theory of Logical Types which shall not be so technical as to repel the non-specialist nor so informal as to disappoint the serious student who wants to see exactly what it is and how it works\"...

Introduction: This is a book of articles about a new theoretical underpinning for computational linguistics. Despite this narrow and technical aim, it contains much that is of interest to philosophers of mind, epistemologists, and philosophers of language, regardless of whether they also have an...
Introduction: This book articulates and defends a view of cognition that contributes to the loose network of approaches to understanding the mind that fall under the headings of situated, embedded, and dynamic cognition. Andy Clark's Being There (1997) is perhaps the best-known philosophical work...
Introduction: Anthologies of expository and critical essays on the philosophy of John Dewey are appearing with ever more frequency, testifying to the resilience of pragmatism and of Dewey's own peculiar contributions to this tradition. Presumably for this reason the editor, Larry Hickman, felt it...
[Review of the book Principles of Instrumental Logic: John Dewey's Lecture in Ethics and Political Ethics, 1895-1896, by ed. D.F. Koch]Download
Introduction: In this latest collection of John Dewey's lectures, Koch continues his valuable work of making Dewey's early writings more widely available to students and scholars interested in tracing Dewey's progress from his early idealist philosophy through to the pragmatic instrumentalism for...
