Studies in Metaphilosophy by Nicholas Rescher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


While philosophers from Plato to Kant and beyond have discussed the mission and methodology of philosophy, this area of deliberation has only recently been acknowledged as a distinctive branch of philosophy as such, duly entitled metaphilosophy. There are, as yet, very few books on the subject so that the present volume joins a rather select group. Professor Rescher has published in the field for some thirty years and this book gathers together a representative sampling of his contributions. Taken together, these pieces convey an instructive overview of the field, as well as vividly conveying their author's take on the key issues that constitute its problem domain.
