Inquiries Into Truth and Interpretation Reviews

    Overall, I liked this collection very much. Not as much as Essays on A&E, but it's still very good. (Indeed, per convention 4 stars means "I loved it".)

    Overall, I liked this collection very much. Not as much as Essays on A&E, but it's still very good. (Indeed, per convention 4 stars means "I loved it".)

    slops:

    - The essays are repetitive, sometimes (not always) to a fault; perhaps part of the reason why Davidson's repertory has such coherence -- despite the fact that he never wrote a book -- is that he has two or three core notions that do most of his work. This is less a criticism of the essays than a caveat to the prospective reader: prepare for massive repetition.

    - Davidson cities Tarski's "The Concept of Truth in Formalized Languages" in Every. Single. Essay. I exaggerate, but still... it's in at least 15 of 'em. I don't know if this is exactly a "slop", but the temptation to play find-the-Tarski-citation is too strong.
