Reviews

'...required reading for anyone interested in Quine, twentieth century philosophy, the role of science, or language. No academic library will be complete without this superb new work.' CHOICE'This is an excellent book, and a welcome addition to the Arguments of the Philosophers series. Peter Hylton succeeds in giving a comprehensive exposition of Quine's main ideas and arguments... It is the most comprehensive single-authored account to date.' - Michael Beaney, University of York, UK 'Hylton's book is a first rate piece of scholarship.' - Roger Gibson, Washington University in St.Louis, USA'This is an excellent piece of work by a philosopher who clearly is expert in Quine scholarship.' -Alexander Miller, University of Birmingham, UK


'This is an excellent book, and a welcome addition to the Arguments of the Philosophers series. Peter Hylton succeeds in giving a comprehensive exposition of Quine's main ideas and arguments. . .so that by the end, a powerful picture of Quine's philosophy has been built up. In my opinion, this book will establish itself as the main secondary text on Quine's philosophy for a number of years to come. It is the most comprehensive single-authored account to date.'- Mike Beaney, University of York, UK'Hylton's book is a first rate piece of scholarship.' - Roger Gibson, Washington University in St.Louis, USA'This is an excellent piece of work by a philosopher who clearly is expert in Quine scholarship. I have no doubt that it will make a solid addition to the Routledge Arguments of the Philosophers Series and to the Quine literature generally.' -Alexander Miller, University of Birmingham, UK'This is a most satisfactory book on Quine's philosophy. It gives a careful and readable presentation of all main points in Quine's philosophy... What sets this book apart in comparison with earlier books on Quine is that the author goes into points that are difficult and that have been left out in the earlier books, bringing out their importance and the argumentative nuances in a clear and pedagogical way. The book will therefore be accessible to advanced undergraduate philosophy students as well as to graduate students.... It is likely to be widely read.' - Dagfinn Follesdal, Stanford University, USA
