Truth and the past by Michael Dummett( )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 2,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Truth and the Past, Michael Dummett clarifies his current positions on the metaphysical issue of realism and the philosophy of language. He is best known as a proponent of antirealism, which loosely characterizes truth as what we are capable of knowing. The events of the past and statements about them are critical tests of an antirealist position. These essays continue and significantly contribute to Dummett's work."--Jacket

The nature and future of philosophy by Michael Dummett( )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosophy is a discipline that makes no observations, conducts no experiments, and needs no input from experience. It is an armchair subject, requiring only thought. Yet that thought can advance knowledge in unexpected directions, not only through the discovery of new facts but also through the enhancement of what we already know. Philosophy can clarify our vision of the world and provide exciting ways to interpret it. Of course, philosophy's unified purpose hasn't kept the discipline from splintering into warring camps. Departments all over the world are divided among analytical and continental schools, Heidegger, Hegel, and other major thinkers, challenging the growth of the discipline and obscuring its relevance and intent. Having spent decades teaching in American, Asian, African, and European universities, Michael Dummett has felt firsthand the fractured state of contemporary practice and the urgent need for reconciliation. Setting forth a proposal for renewal and reengagement, Dummett begins with the nature of philosophical inquiry as it has developed for centuries, especially its exceptional openness and perspective-which has, ironically, led to our present crisis. He discusses philosophy in relation to science, religion, morality, language, and meaning and recommends avenues for healing around a renewed investigation of mind, language, and thought. Employing his trademark frankness and accessibility, Dummett asks philosophers to resolve theoretical difference and reclaim the vital work of their practice."--Publisher's description

Origins of analytical philosophy by Michael Dummett( Book )

40 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book studies the roots of analytical philosophy - that style of philosophizing that has for half a century dominated professional philosophy in English-speaking lands and is often called "Anglo-American," as contrasted with the "Continental," philosophy. This, Dummett argues, is a misnomer. "Anglo-Austrian" would be a better label, for analytical philosophy arose in the same milieu as the principal rival school of phenomenology. Not only that, but the two schools have the same roots. The two forebears of both schools are Bolzano, the first to deny that thoughts are contents of the mind, and Brentano, who made intentionality the defining characteristic of the mental. Analytical philosophy has been distinguished by the central place it has given to language. Dummett explains why what had gone before made this "linguistic turn" so natural, and why the school founded by Husserl failed to take it. By re-examining the similar origins of the two traditions, we can come to understand why the later diverged so widely, and so take the first step to reconciliation."--BOOK JACKET
