ZusammenfassungThis volume brings together a selection of the most philosophically significant papers of Arthur Pap. As Sanford Shieh explains in the Introduction to this volume, Pap?s work played an important role in the development of the analytic tradition. This role goes beyond the merely historical fact that Pap?s views of dispositional and modal concepts were influential. As a sympathetic critic of logical empiricism, Pap, like Quine, saw a deep tension in logical empiricism at its very best in the work of Carnap. But Pap?s critique of Carnap is quite different from Quine?s, and represents the discovery of limits beyond which empiricism cannot go, where there lies nothing other than intuitive knowledge of logic itself. Pap?s arguments for this intuitive knowledge anticipate Etchemendy?s recent critique of the model-theoretic account of logical consequence. Pap?s work also anticipates prominent developments in the contemporary neo-Fregean philosophy of mathematics championed by Wright and Hale. Finally, Pap?s major philosophical preoccupation, the concepts of necessity and possibility, provides distinctive solutions and perspectives on issues of contemporary concern in the metaphysics of modality. In particular, Pap?s account of modality allows us to see the significance of Kripke?s well-known arguments on necessity and apriority in a new light.
This volume will be of interest to all researchers in the philosophical history of the analytic tradition, in philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, and contemporary analytic metaphysics.
