This unique study brings together for the first time two of the most important philosophers of this century. Never before have these two thinkers been compared - and commentators' opinions on their relationship differ greatly. Are the views of Wittgenstein and Quine on method and the nature of philosophy comparable or radically opposed? Does Wittgenstein's concept of language engender that of Quine, or threaten its philosophical foundations?
An understanding of the similarities and differences between the thought of Wittgenstein and of Quine is essential if we are to have a full picture of contemporary philosophy. This collection of essays offers diverse and original ways in which to view their relationship.
Robert L. Arrington is Professor of Philosophy at Georgia State University. He is the author of Rationalism, Realism and Relativism (1989). Hans-Johann Glock is Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Reading and author of A Wittgenstein Dictionary (1996).
