Editorial Reviews


Long awaited by researchers in logic and formal semantics, this highly significant book is original, provocative, well thought out, and technically accomplished.

(Stephen Yablow, Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto)

Arguing that there is nothing wrong with circular definitions, Gupta and Belnap challenge an orthodoxy that has been virtually unbroken since Aristotle. They develop a general theory of circular definitions that is both elegant and mathematically sophisticated.

(Van McGee, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Rutgers University)

or those without a background in formal logic. Gupta and Belnap expand their revision theory of truth, available scattered in various papers and referenced by others, in this book.
The book begins with a relatively straight-forward explanation of why they feel the theory is needed and they provide some layman's explanations for the theory. Most of the remainder of the book will be incomprehensible to those without a good background in formal logic. Belnap and Gupta delve deeply into the theoretical framework of their theory and some of its implications.
Although this book is good for those interested in the theory a reader more interested in the general concepts of truth being pursued within the philosophical community will be better served by borrowing a copy of Kirkham's excellent "Theories of Truth" from a local library. Also recommended are some of Varzi and Casati's papers, notably "True and False: an Exchange", available on-line from their websites.
Good reference for a graduate studying theories of truth and logic; not much use for anyone else.
