The book symposium I organized for this year’s Pacific APA on Greg Frost-Arnold’s Carnap, Tarski, and Quine at Harvard: Conversations of Logic, Mathematics, and Science (Chicago: Open Court, 2013) is coming out in the journal Metascience. The papers are now online:
- Rick Creath, Understandability
- Gary Ebbs, Quine’s “predilection” for finitism
- Greg Lavers, Carnap’s surprising views on the axiom of infinity
- Greg Frost-Arnold, Replies to Creath, Ebbs, and Lavers
You might also like Rick’s review of the book in NDPR and Gary’s in HPL, as well as Paolo Mancosu’s related paper Harvard 1940-41: Tarski, Carnap, and Quine on a Finitistic Language of Mathematics for Science. Thanks to Brad Wray for the invitation to collect the papers there!
