About this book

This book covers W. V. Quine's philosophic career from his early radical empiricism and behaviorism through his development of a series of skeptical doctrines regarding meaning, reference, and science. It shows what problems he tried to solve and what his solutions were. Result has been a series of highly controversial claims that have won him international fame. His work is still a center of controversy and has lead to an enormous literature of commentary.
