17 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Luc REYNAERT on November 26, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This autobiography is only `a factual account of external things'.
It is a summing up of the author's travel experiences and symposia reminiscences.
It contains only very superficial sketches of his family life and professional career and nearly nothing about his philosophical work or about discussions with colleagues.
There are no emotions, no comments on political or social events, on war or peace. Nothing.

I cannot recommend this book.

For an introduction to the work of Quine, I recommend an interview with Bryan Magee published in `Talking Philosophy: dialogues with Fifteen Leading Philosophers.'

Format: Paperback
An interesting book, a bit too long, and a very bad text-formatting job. One would expect much better from MIT press.
