About this book

We are grateful to the authors who wrote papers specially for this volume and kindly gave their permission for printing them together. None of these papers appeared anywhere before. Our special thanks are due to the first six authors who kindly responded to our request and agreed to join this new venture which we are calling 'comparative perspective' in ana­ lytical philosophy. In the introductory essay certain salient points from each paper have been noted only to show how 'com­ parative perspective' may add to, and be integrated with, mod­ ern philosophical discussion in the analytic tradition. Need­ less to say, any mistake, possible mis-attribution or misrepresentation of the views of the original authors of the papers (appearing in the said introductory essay) is entirely the responsibility of the author of that essay. The author apologizes if there has been such unintentional misrepresenta­ tion and insists that the readers should depend upon the orig­ inal papers themselves for their own understanding. For typo­ graphical problems it has not always been possible to use the symbols originally used by the authors, but care has been taken to use the proper substitute for each of them. Bimal K. Matilal ANALYTICAL PHILOSOPHY IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE: AN INTRODUCTION 1. The aim of this volume is to extend the horizon of philosophi­ cal analysis as it is practiced today.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The aims of the collection … are ‘to extend the horizon of philosophical analysis as it is practiced today’ and to ‘open up a new area of contemporary philosophical research’. … The authors … are all accomplished logicians and analytic philosophers. Their essays make valuable contributions to their respective fields ... . this volume, as part of the distinguished Synthese Library, may be expected to promote the growth of this area of research by reaching out to a wider philosophical audience." (Hans G. Herzberger, Journal of Indian Philosophy, Issue 15, 1987)
