Quine and Davidson on language, thought, and reality by Hans-Johann Glock( )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 2,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quine and Davidson are among the leading thinkers of the twentieth century. Their influence on contemporary philosophy is second to none, and their impact is also strongly felt in disciplines such as linguistics and psychology. This is the first book devoted to both of them, but also the first to question some of their basic assumptions. Hans-Johann Glock critically scrutinizes their ideas on ontology, truth, necessity, meaning and interpretation, thought, and language, and shows that their attempts to accommodate meaning and thought within a naturalistic framework, either by impugning them as unclear or by extracting them from physical facts, are ultimately unsuccessful. His discussion includes interesting comparisons of Quine and Davidson with other philosophers, particularly Wittgenstein, and also offers detailed accounts of central issues in contemporary analytic philosophy, such as the nature of truth and of meaning and interpretation, and the relation between thought and language
Wittgenstein's Philosophical investigations : text and context by Robert Arrington( )

22 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although there is a vast amount of secondary literature on the Philosophical Investigations, comparatively little exists which adduces exegetical arguments in favour of particular readings of specific passages. The seemingly disjointed structure of the book has often been taken as a licence to interpret its passages out of context, and there has been a tendency to plunge immediately into discussions about their tenability. In this collection, distinguished Wittgenstein scholars approach the Investigations with the conviction that careful consideration of text and context is needed prior to pronouncements being made on the philosophical significance of individual remarks. Diverse exegetical approaches are represented: while some believe that the Investigations can be read as an independent text, others maintain it is essential to look at the context of a particular remark or variations on it in Wittgenstein's other texts. The authors also differ in their assessment of the philosophical value of their material. Some try to show that careful interpretation reveals valuable insights in what are prima facie untenable passages. Others conclude that certain remarks fail to resolve the issues they address. This is the first strictly exegetical collection of papers on the Investigations, and it fulfils a task no commentary could by exhibiting different interpretive strategies in application to paradigmatic trouble-spots. Therefore it is a major contribution to the understanding of the Investigations and of Wittgenstein's thought in general. It is essential and fascinating reading for those who are interested in this important strand of twentieth-century philosophy

This study brings together two of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century. The two thinkers are compared - and the commentators' opinions on their relationship differ greatly.

This collection of essays offers various and original ways in which to view their relationship

A Wittgenstein dictionary by Hans-Johann Glock( Book )

59 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lucid and accessible dictionary presents technical terms that Wittgenstein introduced into philosophical debate or transformed substantially, and also topics to which he made a substantial contribution. Hans-Johann Glock places Wittgenstein's ideas in their historical context, and indicates their impact on his contemporaries as well as their relevance to current debates. The entries delineate Wittgenstein's lines of argument on particular issues, assessing their strengths and weaknesses, and shed light on fundamental exegetical controversies."--BOOK JACKET. "The dictionary entries are prefaced by a 'Sketch of an Intellectual Biography', which links the basic themes of the early and later philosophy and describes the general development of Wittgenstein's thinking. Extensive textual references, a detailed index and an annotated bibliography will facilitate further study. Authoritative, comprehensive and clear, the volume will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in Wittgenstein - his life, work or influence."--Jacket
What is analytic philosophy? by Hans-Johann Glock( Book )

27 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Analytic philosophy is roughly a hundred years old, and it is now the dominant force within Western philosophy. Interest in its historical development is increasing, but there has hitherto been no sustained attempt to elucidate what it currently amounts to, and how it differs from so-called 'continental' philosophy. In this book, Hans-Johann Glock argues that analytic philosophy is a loose movement held together both by ties of influence and by various family resemblances. He considers the pros and cons of various definitions of analytic philosophy, and tackles the methodological, historiographical philosophical issues raised by such definitions. Finally, he explores the wider intellectual and cultural implications of the notorious divide between analytic and continental philosophy. His book will be an invaluable guide for anyone seeking to understand analytic philosophy and how it is practised."--Jacket

The rise of analytic philosophy( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The debate about the origins of analytical philosophy has recently been revived by Michael Dummett's definition of analytic philosophy as based on the Fregean idea that the analysis of thought proceeds through the analysis of language. The contributors to this collection take a wider perspective on the rise of analytic philosophy. They include its anglophone roots, and take into consideration later developments up to and beyond the Vienna Circle. Some of them argue that Dummett's account would exclude paradigmatic analytic philosophers like Moore, Russell and perhaps even Frege himself. There is also a marked interest in the more general question of whether analytic philosophy can be defined analytically at all, or whether it should be treated as a family resemblance concept or as a particular historical tradition."--Jacket
