The text also offers detailed accounts of central issues in contemporary analytic philosophy.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this book is the first to examine the work of both Quine and Davidson together and to explore the connections between them. That in itself makes this work a welcome addition to the sizeable pile of literature already devoted to each of these two...Glock's exposition of these often complicated and technical issues is lucid and accurate. He manages to balance the demands of providing clear exposition with critical engagement in a way which ensures that this book will be of benefit to those who are seeking a better understanding of its two protagonists." Metapsychology

    "...this really is an excellent source-book of both key-theses and important criticisms." Philosophy in Review
