A collection of nine 'logico-philosophical essays', including Quine's seminal essay 'Two Dogmas of Empiricism', often regarded as amongst the most important papers in twentieth-century analytic philosophy, a concentrated attack on logical positivism focusing on the distinction between analytic and synthetic propositions, with Quine advocating instead a form of semantic holism.
