About this title:

Synopsis: This book presents, in one single volume, the first cogent overview of Nicholas Rescher's position in theoretical philosophy. Marsonet's wide ranging knowledge of American philosophy enables him to position Rescher's work in the wider setting of its relationships with various contemporary American and European thinkers. He provides comparisons between Rescher's stance and the positions endorsed by philosophers like Quine, Sellars, Popper, Davidson, Rorty, Rawls and Habermas. The main goal of the book is to show that Rescher's system provides an interesting way out from the crisis of analytic philosophy by dealing, in particular, with his rediscovery of the American pragmatist tradition. Marsonet traces the development in Rescher's speculative evolution, focusing on the importance of the growth of pragmatist elements. This book serves as an excellent introduction to Rescher's philosophy, and will give readers a schematic, yet comprehensive account of his views on various philosophical topics, including: epistemology, metaphysics, philosophical logic, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, and social and political philosophy.

About the Author: Michele Marsonet is Associate Professor of Logic and Philosophy at the Universtiy of Genoa in Italy. He is also the author of many books, including: Science, Reality, and Language (State University of New York Press Albany, NY, 1995), and Introduzione alla filosofia scientifica del '900 (An Introduction to Scientific Philosophy of the Twentiedth Century) (Studium, Rome, 1994)
