Norris, Christopher
Hilary Putnam: Realism, Reason, and the Uses of Uncertainty.
Manchester University Press, Manchester and New York, 2002. First edition of Christopher Norris's study of the philosophy of Hilary Putnam. Octavo, original boards, gilt titles to the spine and front panel. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "For Hilary Putnam, With best wishes (and in some trepidation) Christopher Norris (Cardiff, October 2002)." In near fine condition. In this detailed study, Christopher Norris defends the arguments advanced by early realist, Hilary Putnam. Norris makes a point of placing Putnam's work in a wider philosophical context, relating it to various current debates in epistemology and the philosophy of science. Much like Putnam, Norris is willing to take full account of opposed viewpoints while maintaining a vigorously argued commitment to the values of debate and inquiry.
