Reason, Method and Value: A Reader on the Philosophy of Nicholas Rescher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Nicholas Rescher has enjoyed a long and distinguished career in philosophy, writing on many different areas from logic to philosophy of language, epistemology, pragmatism, ethics and political philosophy, and metaphilosophy. This volume offers a selection of Rescher's writings over a span of decades representing the core of his prodigious research interests in six key areas. Each section is accompanied by a compact critical introduction written by a leading philosophical scholar with special expertise in Rescher's philosophy, and the volume opens with an appreciative introduction written by the editor and a concluding retrospective by Rescher, looking back over his oeuvre and explaining connecting themes and the unity of system contained in this extensive body of work. Taken together, the volume encapsulates the heart of Rescher's impressive lifelong contributions to philosophy between two covers, in a single volume that provides a solid overview of his thought while serving to direct readers to the corpus of Rescher's writings for a more complete picture.

Table of Contents

Introduction; Theory of Inquiry; Logic & Paradox; Science & its Limits; Metaphysics; Ethical & Social Philosophy; Comments on Rescher's Essays on Philosophical Systemisation.
