"This book not only offers bold solutions to core problems in the philosophy of science, its clear and careful presentations of the issues make it an excellent book for introducing students to these topics."
--Robert Schwartz, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
"Inquiries brings together important philosophical papers on language, science and education. It shows how the preoccupations of each field are enriched by contact with the others."
--Catherine Z. Elgin, Professor of the Philosophy of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
"Inquiries" contains some of Israel Scheffler's most important essays. Some are classics; all are substantial contributions to the topics they address. They range across much of the philosophical landscape, including philosophy of language, epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and philosophy of education; they advance our understanding of quotation, inscription, symbols and symbolic reference, predication, explanation, induction,confirmation, objectivity, the emotions, teaching and learning. This welcome reprinting brings Scheffler's important and infuential work to a new generation of scholars."
--Harvey Siegel, Professor of Philosophy, University of Miami
