Truth and predication by Donald Davidson( Book )

29 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Davidson begins by harking back to an early interest in the classics, and an even earlier engagement with the workings of grammar. In the pleasures of diagramming sentences in grade school, he locates his first glimpse into the mechanics of how we conduct the most important activities in our life - such as declaring love, asking directions, issuing orders, and telling stories. Davidson connects these essential questions with the most basic and yet hard to understand mysteries of language use - how we connect noun to verb. This is a problem that Plato and Aristotle wrestled with, and Davidson draws on their thinking to show how an understanding of linguistic behavior is critical to the formulating of a workable concept of truth
Subjective, intersubjective, objective by Donald Davidson( Book )

50 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Subjective, Intersubjective, Objective is the third volume of philosophical writings by Donald Davidson, whose influence on philosophy since the 1960s has been deep and broad. His first two collections, published by OUP in the early 1980s, are recognized as contemporary classics." "Now Davidson presents a selection of his work on knowledge, mind, and language from the 1980s and the 1990s. We all have knowledge of our own minds, knowledge of the contents of other minds, and knowledge of the shared environment. Davidson examines the nature and status of each of these three sorts of knowledge, and the connections and differences among them. Along the way he has illuminating things to say about truth, human rationality, and the relations among language, thought, and the world." "This new volume offers a rich and rewarding feast for anyone interested in philosophy today, and is essential reading for anyone working on its central topics."--Jacket
Problems of rationality by Donald Davidson( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays in honor of Carl G. Hempel : a tribute on the occasion of his sixty-fifth birthday by Nicholas Rescher( Book )

20 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and German and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eminent philosopher of science Carl G. Hempel, Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University and a Past President of the American Philosophical Association, has had a long and distinguished academic career in the course of which he has been professorial mentor to some of America's most distinguished philosophers. This volume gathers together twelve original papers by Hempel's students and associates into a volume intended to do homage to Hempel on the occasion of his 65th year in 1970. The papers are grouped around the unifying topic of Hempel's own interests in logic and philosophy of science, the great majority dealing with issues on inductive logic and the theory of scientific explanatio- problems to which Hempel has devoted the bulk of his outstandingly fruitful efforts. With the approach of 'Peter' Hempel's 65th birthday, an editorial committee sprang into being by an uncannily spontaneous process to prepare to commemorate this event with an appropriate Festschrift. The editors were pleased to receive unfailingly prompt and efficient coopera tion on the part of all contributors. The responsibility of seeing the work through the press was assumed by Nicholas Rescher. The editors are grateful to all concerned for their collaboration.

Truth, language and history by Donald Davidson( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Truth, Language, and History is the much-anticipated final volume of Donald Davidson's philosophical writings. In four groups of essays, Davidson continues to explore the themes that occupied him for more than fifty years: the relations between language and the world; speaker intention and linguistic meaning; language and mind; mind and body; mind and world; mind and other minds. He asks: what is the role of the concept of truth in these explorations? And, can a scientific world view make room for human thought without reducing it to something material and mechanistic? Including a new introduction by his widow, Marcia Cavell, this volume completes Donald Davidson's colossal intellectual legacy. -- Publisher description

Wie hängen Denken, Sprechen und Handeln untereinander und mit der Welt zusammen? Hartnäckig wie kaum ein anderer Denker hat sich der amerikanische Philosoph Donald Davidson zeit seines Lebens mit dieser Frage auseinandergesetzt. Seine Antworten, formuliert in einer Vielzahl von luziden Essays, gehören längst zum Kanon der Philosophiegeschichte. Mit Wahrheit, Sprache und Geschichte liegen seine philosophischen Hauptwerke nun vollständig in deutscher Sprache vor. Die Aufsätze des Bandes behandeln die wichtigsten Themen der modernen Sprachphilosophie und der Philosophie des Geistes. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Frage, welche Rolle das philosophisch gewichtige, gleichwohl prekäre Konzept der Wahrheit spielt und wie die Arbeit des menschlichen Geistes in ein wissenschaftliches Weltbild integrierbar ist, ohne sie auf materialistische oder mechanistische Grundlagen zu reduzieren. Schließlich setzt Davidson seine Thesen zu klassischen Positionen der philosophischen Tradition in Beziehung. Der Band versammelt so berühmte Essays wie>>Eine hübsche Unordnung von Epitaphen<<oder>>Dialektik und Dialog<<, seine Dankesrede anläßlich der Verleihung des Hegel-Preises der Stadt Stuttgart. Zu den Überraschungen zählt unter anderem das Stück>>Der dritte Mann<<, geschrieben für die Ausstellung>>Blind Time Drawings with Davidson<<des Künstlers Robert Morris, einem der Hauptvertreter des Minimalismus und der Land Art. Marcia Cavell leitet den Band ein, der mit einem kurzen Anhang schließt, in dem Davidson auf seine Kritiker antwortet. (Quelle:
