Tietoja tekijästä

According to John Passmore, Hilary Putnam's work is a "history of recent philosophy in outline" (Recent Philosophers). He adds that writing "about "Putnam's philosophy' is like trying to capture the wind with a fishing-net." Born in Chicago and educated at the University of Pennsylvania and the näytä lisää University of California at Los Angeles, Putnam taught at Northwestern University, Princeton University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before moving to Harvard University in 1965. In his early years at Harvard, he was an outspoken opponent of the war in Vietnam. Although he writes in the idiom of analytic philosophy, Putnam addresses major themes relating science to ethics and epistemology. If these themes are reminiscent of David Hume---as, for that matter, is much of analytic philosophy---his treatment of them is not. Putnam's work is far more profoundly shaped by recent work in logic, foundations of mathematics, and science than would have been possible for Hume; Putnam has contributed to each. He differs from Hume and stands more in the tradition of Willard Quine and American pragmatism in his treatment of the crucial distinctions between analytic and synthetic statements and between facts and values. Both distinctions, sharply made by Hume, are claimed by Putnam not to be absolute. He attempts to show, for example, that basic concepts of philosophy, science, and mathematics all are interrelated, so that mathematics bears more similarity to empirical reasoning than is customarily acknowledged.

Through the thought experiment of "brain in a vat" and "twin earth" to refute Descartes' skepticism, and even investigate the dispute between realism and nominalism. The former regards the universality of things ( Universal) as a Platonic entity, which the latter denies its real existence. The presupposed transcendental perspective makes Putnam's "referential theory" self-paradoxical, and also makes this reductive absurdity argument based on Semantic Externalism appear to be split and self-defeating.… (lisätietoja)

Labor to get through. They virtually refuse ever to make their point. 80% of the book is approaching something like a point then saying “but that’s beyond the scope of this essay.”

No thoughts of interest are presented here. If you want to know what Dewey, James, and Pearce thought, read either the writers themselves or some other book. This book was SUCH a waste of time.
