Introduction: Natural Kinds and Conceptual Change is a refreshingly direct book that challenges a range oforthodox views in the philosophy of science (especially biology), the philosophy of language, and metaphysics. Amongst these are the views that species are individuals rather than natural...
Introduction: This very short book is apparently intended as a supplementary text in a graduate AI course. The author describes it as a \"text and reference work on the applications of non-standard logics to artificial intelligence (AI).\" It gives short and concise (too short and too concise, in...
