12 offprints of articles on philosophy, logic, mathematics, etc., from the collection of Wilfrid Sellars

Paperback. All very good in wraps, two with "Fitch" in pencil by Sellars on front covers. Fitch was a well known logician whose students included Alan Ross Anderson and who invented a form of calculus for arranging formal logical proofs as diagrams. 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. Includes: An Extension of Basic Logic (1948), A Simplification of Basic Logic (1953), An Extensional Variety of Extended Basic Logic (1958), Note on Modal Functions (1939), Modal Functions in Two-Valued Logic (1937), Quasi-Constructive Foundations for Mathematics (1951?), The Perfection of Perfection (1963), Some Logical Aspects of Reference and Existence (nd), On Natural Numbers, Integers, and Rationals (1949), Representation of Sequential Circuits in Combinatory Logic (1958), A Correlation Between Modal Reduction Principles and Properties of Relations (1973), Contemporary Logic and Whitehead's Theory of Prehensions (1957). Very Good. Item #H17742
