Explicating Explication: Carnap’s Ideal [Review of Carnap’s Ideal of Explication and Naturalism] [Book Review]

Adam Tamas Tuboly
Hungarian Academy of Sciences
Carnap’s Ideal of Explication and Naturalism is the second book on Rudolf Carnap’s philosophy edited by Pierre Wagner for Palgrave Macmillan’s series The History of Analytic Philosophy. The collection of essays is important for several reasons both for philosophers and historians of philosophy, but some parts of it will also be valuable to anyone interested in general scientific methodologies. I shall first survey the theme in order to locate the collection within the recent philosophical discussion then I will consider the volume itself.
