This volume is a collection of papers on different topics in various branches of philosophy in the analytical tradition. They tackle, with analytical style, widely different problems in logic (both mathematical and philosophical), epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of mathematics, ethics, linguistics and the cognitive sciences. The variety of topics and the lively exposition characterizing the essays are such that readers with widely different concerns can find something of interest here.
