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
