Contemporary Philosophy

The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy, Volume 8

Daniel Dahlstrom, Editor

This volume is aptly entitled “contemporary philosophy” because its ensemble of essays poses this question with thoughtful urgency and piquant clarity. The essays express a panoply of views and viewpoints, from ringing endorsements of the Enlightenment’s ideal of objectivity in science and history to questions of the reconcilability of that ideal, as it is pursued in the twentieth century, with the other Enlightenment ideal of humanism. Contributors include Louise M. Antony, Peter Caws, Daniel Dennett, Steve Fuller, Hans Lenk, Natalie Stoljar, P. F. Strawson, Paul Weiss, and Georg Henrik von Wright.
