Logical semiotics and mereology by R. M Martin( )

20 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume are concerned with a variety of vitally important topics in philosophical logic, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of mathematics, the philosophy of science, and in the application of modern logic to wider philosophical problems. All of them make fundamental use, in one way or another, of logical semiotics, the modern trivium of systematic syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, and some of them, of mereology, the general theory of parts and whole. The book includes 20 articles, dealing with such subjects as 'Logical semiotics and logistic grammar', 'The semiotics of mathematical practice', 'Husserlian parts and wholes', 'Compound individuals and the languages of science', and discusses work of Geach, Lesniewski, Carnap, Peirce, and Quine

Pragmatics, truth, and language by R. M Martin( Book )

18 editions published in 1979 in 3 languages and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Martin's thoroughly philosophical as well as thoroughly tech nical investigations deserve continued and appreciative study. His sympathy and good cheer do not obscure his rigorous standard, nor do his contemporary sophistication and intellectual independence obscure his critical congeniality toward classical and medieval philosophers. So he deals with old and new; his papers, in his neat self-descriptions, consist of reminders, criticisms, and constructions. They might also be seen as studies in the understanding of truth, ramifying as widely in mathematics, logic, and epistemology as well as metaphysics, as such understanding has required. For us it is a pleasant occasion to welcome Richard Martin's new Boston Studies, and to note his continuously con collection to the structive and critical interventions at the Boston Colloquium for the of Science.

Studies in the philosophy of J.N. Findlay( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, this volume presents a series of critical and constructive studies in the philosophy of J.N. Findlay. His contributions to both historical and systematic philosophy are examined by outstanding authors in the field, many of whom are his former students and colleagues. The value of these essays is heightened by Findlay's own contributions: two autobiographical chapters detail the evolution of his thought and relationships, and in a final section of comments, he evaluates and responds to the studies in this collection
Primordiality, science, and value by R. M Martin( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1986 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That traditional methods do not suffice was pointed out years back by Jan Salamucha in his pioneering work on the ex motu argument of St. Thomas, in The New Scholasticism XXXII (1958) but first published in 1934. Although modern logic is a comparatively young science, he noted, it provides us "with many new and subtle tools for exact thinking. To reject them is to adopt the attitude of one who stubbornly insists on traveling by stage-coach, though having at his disposal a train or airplane ... The great philosophers of the past did not rely exclusively on those weak logical tools left to them by their predecessors. The very problems themselves and their own scientific genius forced them to build rational reconstructions that went far beyond those of their time
Whitehead's categoreal scheme and other papers by R. M Martin( Book )

16 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The philosophical papers comprising this volume range from process metaphysics and theology, through the phenomenological study of intentionality, to the foundations of geometry and of the system of real numbers. New light, it is thought, is shed on all these topics, some of them being of the highest interest and under intensive investigation in contemporary philosophical discussion. Metaphysi­ cians, process theologians, semanticists, theorists of knowledge, phenomenologists, and philosophers of mathematics will thus find in this book, it is hoped, helpful materials and methods. The categoreal scheme of Whitehead's Process and Reality is discussed rather fully from a logical point of view in the first paper [I] in the light of the author's previous work on the logico-metaphysical theory of events. The clarification that results is thought to provide a new depth and precision to the problem of interpreting one of the most difficult books in the recent history of metaphysics and cosmol­ ogy. A detailed examination of some aspects of Hartshorne's recent Creative Synthesis and Philosophic Method is given in II. This book is perhaps the most significant work on process philosophy since Process and Reality itself, and its logical underpinnings thus merit a full critical discussion
