br i Taking Wittgenstein at His Word i is an experiment in reading organized around a central question What kind of interpretation of Wittgenstein s later philosophy emerges if we adhere strictly to his claims that he is not in the business of presenting and defending philosophical theses and that his only aim is to expose persistent conceptual misunderstandings that lead to deep philosophical perplexities Robert Fogelin draws out the therapeutic aspects of Wittgenstein s later work by closely examining his account of rule following and how he applies the idea in the philosophy of mathematics br br br The first of the book s two parts focuses on rule following Wittgenstein s paradox of interpretation and his naturalistic response to this paradox all of which are persistent and crucial features of his later philosophy Fogelin offers a corrective to the frequent misunderstanding that the paradox of interpretation is a paradox about meaning and he emphasizes the importance of Wittgenstein s often undervalued appeals to natural responses The second half of the book examines how Wittgenstein applies his reflections on rule following to the status of mathematical propositions proofs and objects leading to remarkable demystifying results br br br br i Taking Wittgenstein at His Word i shows that what Wittgenstein claims to be doing and what he actually does are much closer than is often recognized In doing so the book underscores fundamental but frequently underappreciated insights about Wittgenstein s later philosophy, George Berkeley is one of the most prominent philosophers of the eighteenth century His em Principles of Human Knowledge em has become a focal point in the understanding of empiricist thought and the development of eighteenth century philosophy br This volume introduces and assesses br Berkeley s life and the background to the em Principles em br The ideas and text in the em Principles em br Berkeley s continuing importance to philosophy br, No description available, Since its publication in the mid eighteenth century Hume s discussion of miracles has been the target of severe and often ill tempered attacks In this book one of our leading historians of philosophy offers a systematic response to these attacks br br br Arguing that these criticisms have from the very start rested on misreadings Robert Fogelin begins by providing a narrative of the way Hume s argument actually unfolds What Hume s critics and even some of his defenders have failed to see is that Hume s primary argument depends on fixing the appropriate standards of evaluating testimony presented on behalf of a miracle Given the definition of a miracle Hume quite reasonably argues that the standards for evaluating such testimony must be extremely high Hume then argues that as a matter of fact no testimony on behalf of a religious miracle has even come close to meeting the appropriate standards for acceptance Fogelin illustrates that Hume s critics have consistently misunderstood the structure of this argument and have saddled Hume with perfectly awful arguments not found in the text He responds first to some early critics of Hume s argument and then to two recent critics David Johnson and John Earman Fogelin s goal however is not to bash the bashers but rather to show that Hume s treatment of miracles has a coherence depth and power that makes it still the best work on the subject
