DAILY WISDOM

A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in the mathematical harmony with ones individual karma. The horoscope is a challenging portrait, revealing ones unalterable past and probable future results. The message boldly blazoned across the heavens at the moment of birth is not meant to emphasize fate, but to arouse our will to action. - Swami Sri Yukteswar

The Roots of Reference

$25.49 $19.12

Quantity:

Arranged in three parts the specific concern of this work is reference to concrete and abstract objects: what such reference consists in, and how we achieve it.

Part I is a statement of general psychological presumptions regarding perception and learning. The under-lying notions of cause and disposition are examined in a philosophical spirit.

Part II comes firmly to grips with the nature of reification and reference. Stages of reification - rudimentary to full-fledged –are sorted out. The full phase is heralded by the use of the relative clause with its relative pronoun and subsidiary pronouns. It is these pronouns that recur in logical notation as the bound variables of quantification.

Part III concludes with a conjectural sketch of the development of reification in the race and the individual.

Table of Contents:

  • Preface
  • Introduction
  • Perceiving and Learning
  • Breaking into Language
  • Referring to Objects
  • References
  • Index.

About the Author:

W.V. Quine, mathematician and philosopher, held the Edgar Pierce Chair of Philosophy at Harvard University from 1956 to 2000. Over the last half century his literary output was prodigious in such areas as mathematical logic, set theory, the philosophy of language and the philosophy of logic. Quine made many contributions to logic, but in his philosophical writings he focused on meaning and existence – the age-old concerns of philosopher-man – and he thus continued the traditions begun by the ancient greeks.
