Pursuit of Truth is, like all Quine’s works, most engagingly written. He strives for concision of the most telegraphic sort, and achieves it in a way that gives the special pleasure evoked by a conspicuous skill.—Anthony Quinton, The Times

With his usual wit and aplomb, Quine offers here his latest—though one hopes and expects not his last—word on a variety of intersecting topics that have figured centrally in his life’s work… The book offers not only a lucid and compelling summary of Quine’s views, but also provides invaluable clarifications, reformulations, and substantive updating… Capable of serving as a concise introduction to Quine’s views, this book will also prove invaluable in more sophisticated efforts to understand and appraise his accomplishments.Choice

Jacket: The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, by Anthony Abraham Jack, from Harvard University Press

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
