Editorial Reviews

From Scientific American

A wideranging examination of several central issues in metaphysics, philosophy of language, epistemology, and philosophy of science.... Realism and Truth is well worth reading. Devitt writes with clarity and sophistication, and his book is sure to ruffle some anti realist feathers. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Review

"With this worthwhile second edition Devitt's voice remains one of the most important and distinctive in the arena of contemporary metaphysics--it is too loud and too clear to be ignored."--John Divers, The Philosophical Quarterly



"A wide-ranging examination of several central issues in metaphysics, philosophy of language, epistemology, and philosophy of science.... Realism and Truth is well worth reading. Devitt writes with clarity and sophistication, and his book is sure to ruffle some anti-realist feathers."--Philip Gasper, Philosophical Review



"This book is highly recommended for those who want to break into the current realism/anti-realism debate.... An ideal text for those teachers who want to give their students a `map of the territory.'"--Patrick Madigan, The Review of Metaphysics

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Devitt does a wonderful job in separating the Metaphysical and epistemological issues in the Realism/Anti-Realism debate. After reading Realism and Truth it is possible to see how so many people are sympathetic to Anti-Realism. It makes an excellent starting point for getting into the Anti-Realism literature.
