This book provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the
work of Willard van Orman Quine, the most important and influential
American philosopher of the post-war period. An understanding of
Quine's work is essential for anyone who wishes to follow
contemporary debates in the philosophy of language, the philosophy
of mind and metaphysics.

Hookway traces the development of Quine's work from his early
criticisms of logical positivism and empiricism to his more recent
theories about mind and meaning. He gives particular attention to
Quine's controversial arguments concerning the indeterminacy of
translation, comparing Quine's views with those of Davidson, Putnam
and others. Hookway concludes by offering a critical appraisal of
Quine's approach and of some of his fundamental philosophical
commitments.


This lucid and balanced study will be essential reading for
students of philosophy. It will also be invaluable for students in
the social sciences and other disciplines who are looking for a
clear introduction to Quine's ideas.
