Abstract

In this critical appraisal of the work of philosopher Susan Haack, editor Cornelis de Waal has assembled sixteen original essays from outstanding international contributors together with responses from Haack on the points raised. The contributors address most of Haack’s key publications, from her early writings on metaphysics to her most recent work in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of law. Topics include: the revisability of logic, the role of emotion in reasoning, scientific integrity, postmodernism and the law, the relation of science to religion, preferential hiring, multiple aspects of Haack’s "foundherentism," and her crossword analogy. The volume also includes an extensive interview with Haack, which traces the development of her thought, and a complete bibliography of her work.
