Review of Metaphysics 7 (1):89 - 97 (1953)

Mr. Wisdom, as a philosopher, wants to tell philosophers that they should not use an inductive schema to talk about science. Mr. Bridgman wants to tell scientists they should be more cautious in the use of concepts. Mr. Hempel wants to tell scientists, and I presume social scientists especially, that defining is a tricky matter and should not be indulged in lightly. And finally, Mr. Brain wants to tell philosophers how to talk a bit more sensibly about brains, sense data and minds. Thus every combination of teacher and pupil in the philosopher-scientist domain seems to have been covered in these four efforts.
