Editorial Reviews

Review

Even the reader who is largely unsympathetic to Field's larger philosophical projects will almost invariably find his discussion of particular issues suggestive. Since the range of issues addressed is so extensive, this volume will be required reading for a large segment of the philosophical community. The Philosophical Review

17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By L. Johan on November 14, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of Hartry Field's papers, and it contains every substantial thing he has written from the classical papers on Tarski's theory of truth and on mental representations to the late papers on the deflationary theory of truth - some of the papers appear here in revised versions. In addition, Field has written new comments on some of the papers, and - apart from giving helpful and updated clarifications - these comments shows clearly in which direction his thinking is heading at present.
For anyone who is interested in contemporary philosophy and the latest development in truth theory, this is a must read. But don't worry; it is enjoyable stuff, especially if you appreciate Field's slightly arrogant and relaxed style.
