Perspectives on Quine free pdf This collection of 21 essays deals with the thought of the American philosopher, Willard Van Orman Quine. After the editors' brief introduction to Quine's thought, the volume opens with an essay by Quine entitled "Three Indeterminacies". Here Quine presents his latest thoughts on a number of controversial issues such as indeterminacy of translation, inscrutability of reference and underdetermination of physical theory. The 20 essays that follow, written by philosophers and scholars and arranged alphabetically by author, examine a variety of Quine's concerns ranging from logic and set theory to natural language, truth, evidence, natural kinds and naturalized epistemology. Quine's comments follow each of the essays.
