A Companion to W.V.O. Quine

Willard Van Orman Quine, often referred to as the twentieth century's “Father of American Philosophy,” was the most influential analytic philosopher in the United States during the latter part of the century. Celebrated for his arguments against logical empiricism, his prolific contributions span many areas of philosophy, covering mathematical logic, philosophy of language, ontology and metaphysics, and epistemology, and continue to have significant resonance within the discipline today.

A Companion to W.V.O. Quine brings together original contributions by a team of leading figures within contemporary philosophy. The essays provide an in-depth exposition and analysis of Quine's influence across the discipline's many subfields; they assess his numerous contributions, highlighting the breadth of his work, and revealing his continued relevance within the philosophical community. Covering the areas of method, language, logic, mathematics, science, and Quine's relation to other philosophers, the volume will be of significance to advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as professional philosophers seeking an overview and a critical discussion of Quine's work
