Synopses & Reviews
Hans Herzberger, now retired and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, had a major influence on a generation of philosophers. In his honor and in appreciation of his impressive scholarship and personal influence, this volume presents essays from philosophers such as Isaac Levi, Calvin Normore, Jamie Tappenden, Alasdair Urquhart, Achille Varzi, and Steven Yablo. Each essay is original and appears here for the first time. They are fresh, illuminating, and cover an eclectic range of topics, including rational choice theory, Frege scholarship and interpretation, the nature of truth, the inexpressible and the unknowable, and fundamental ontologyall topics of central importance in philosophy and all dear to the heart of Hans Herzberger.
