A Radical Interpretation of Quine
Graduate studies at Western
|Abstract||On this, the 97th anniversary of the year of his birth, thoughts turn naturally to Willard Van Orman Quine. Quine, known as ‚ÄòVan‚Äô to his friends but ‚ÄòThat putz with the beret‚Äô to everyone else, was one of the great systematists of the last century. The range of topics he addressed is awesome: epistemology, confirmation, philosophical logic, set theory, analyticity, modality, and, perhaps most familiarly, the indeterminacy of translation. My focus in this, my final and most challenging address as Chair of the Department of Philosophy, will be on this last topic.|
