“John Burgess’s book is a gem: an accessible yet nuanced introduction to the work of one of our greatest living philosophers. While the book can serve as a selective introduction not only to Kripke’s thought, but also more generally to core topics in contemporary analytic philosophy, it also has much to offer seasoned Kripke scholars. The discussions of Kripke on modal epistemology, on Wittgenstein on rules, and on a posteriori necessities involving natural kinds — to mention just three topics — will be read with interest by anyone working in the relevant areas. More than that, the book is eminently readable, witty — in fact, downright funny in places — and both tells a compelling story about Kripke’s place in the history of philosophy and shows how central themes of his oeuvre interrelate.”
On Friday, November 15th, Saul Kripke Center Director Gary Ostertag will speak at a symposium celebrating Kripke, John Burgess’ recently published book on the work of Saul Kripke. The event will take place from 4:00pm to 6:00pm on Friday, November 15, 2013 at Betts Auditorium, School of Architecture, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ.
“That four of the most admired and discussed essays in 1970s philosophy are here is enough to make this first volume of Saul Kripke’s collected articles a must-have…The reader’s delight will grow as hints are dropped that there is a great deal more to come in this series being prepared by Kripke and an ace team of philosopher-editors at the Saul Kripke Center at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.”
Saul Kripke will discuss his book, Philosophical Troubles, at the December Eastern APA in an Author Meets Critics session. The session will be chaired by Delia Graff Fara (Princeton University) and the two critics will be Ted Sider (Cornell University) and John Hawthorne (Oxford University). The session will be on Sunday December 29 from 2:45-5:45.
