Group of 17 offprints on logic, reasoning, proof, philosophy from the collection of Wilfrid Sellars

Paperback. All very good. Sellars was a major American philosopher who was the first to synthesize American pragmatism with Continental analytical philosophy and Vienna Circle logical positivism. He ranks with Carnap, Hempel, Salmon and Grunbaum as among the 20th century's most influential philosophers. Cohen's work mainly concerned the limits of human reasoning and the place of logic and philosophy in legal and transactional situations. Includes: Do Illocutionary Forces Exist? (1964), Geach on Referring Expressions (1962), Whose is the fallacy? A Rejoinder to Daniel Kahneman and Amost Tversky (1980), What Has Science to do with Truth? (1980), What is the ability to refer to things, as a constituent of a language-speaker's competence? (1970), On the psychology of prediction: Whose is the fallacy? (1979, 2 copies), Review of Kneale's The Development of Logic (1962), The Problem of Natural Laws (1980), How Empirical is Contemporary Logical Empiricism? (1976), Claims to Knowledge (ND), Geach on Referring Expressions (ND), A Logic for Evidential Support (II) (1966), On a Concept of Degree of Grammaticalness (1965), Application Conditions for Eliminative Induction (1980), Bayesianism versus Baconianism in the Evaluation of Medical Diagnoses (1980), Is a Criterion of Verifiability Possible?
