In a reading group, we’ve been working through the first three parts of Field’s Saving Truth from Paradox, by the end of which he has presented his core proposals. At this point, we’ve now rather lost the will to continue – for this is an astonishingly badly written book, which makes ridiculous demands on the patience of even a sympathetic reader. It so happened that it fell to me to introduce the last two chapters in Part III, Ch. 17 in which Field rounds out his key technical construction, and Ch. 18, ‘What Has Been Done’. I talked mainly about the latter. Here, for what they are worth, are some very quickly written reflections on what has and hasn’t been achieved
