These five volumes contain the most essential of the more than 2000 articles which have been written about Quine's work. Chosen for their clarity and brevity, they cover both basic ideas as well as objections to Quine's work. The collection is an ideal resource for students and scholars, containing difficult-to-find material as well as several articles written expressly for this set.
Dagfinn Follesdal studied science and mathematics in Oslo and Gottingen before going to Harvard to study with Quine. He has taught at Harvard, Oslo and Stanford. The author of several books in Norwegian, German, Danish, and Swedish as well as over 100 journal articles, he was editor of The Journal of Symbolic Logic from 1970-1982.
