Analyses of Aristotle by Jaakko Hintikka( )

"Aristotle thought of his logic and methodology as applications of the Socratic questioning method. In particular, logic was originally a study of answers necessitated by earlier answers. For Aristotle, thought-experiments were real experiments in the sense that by realizing forms in one's mind, one can read off their properties and interrelations. Treating forms as independent entities, knowable one by one, committed Aristotle to his mode of syllogistic explanation. He did not think of existence, predication and identity as separate senses of estin. Aristotle thus serves as an example of a thinker who did not rely on the distinction between the allegedly different Fregean senses, thereby shedding new light on our own conceptual presuppositions." "This collection comprises several interpretations that Jaakko Hintikka has put forward over the years, constituting a challenge not only to Aristotelian scholars and historians of ideas, but to everyone interested in logic, epistemology or metaphysics and in their history."--BOOK JACKET

Meta-meditations : studies in Descartes by Alexander Sesonske( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Descartes' "Meditations" probably rivals Plato's "Republic" as the work most frequently read or recommended as an introduction to philosophy. Its qualifications for this purpose are obvious: it is important, relatively short, well written, and seems--in the beginning at least--readily understandable. One of the most influential works in the history of Western thought, the "Meditations" has often been considered the keynote of modern philosophy. This collection of critical discussions is intended primarily for use by students reading Descartes in an introductory philosophy course. These essays will lead a reader to explore several of the problems which emerge when "Meditations" is subjected to careful scrutiny. Not all the problems raised by the "Meditations" are examined, but they provide the means to transform the work from a merely historical document into a nest of currently interesting questions
Time & necessity; studies in Aristotle's theory of modality by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

The principles of mathematics revisited by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Book, written by one of philosophy's pre-eminent logicians, argues that many of the basic assumptions commonly made in logic, the foundations of mathematics, and metaphysics are in need of change. It is therefore a book of critical importance to logical theory and the philosophy of mathematics. Jaako Hintikka proposes a new basic first-order logic and uses it to explore the foundations of mathematics. This new logic enables logicians to express on the first-order level such concepts as equicardinality, infinity, and truth in the same language. The famous impossibility results by Godel and Tarski that have dominated the field for the past sixty years turn out to be much less significant than has been thought. All of ordinary mathematics can in principle be done on this first-order level, thus dispensing with all problems concerning the existence of sets and other higher-order entities. Hintikka's new logic is highly original and will prove appealing to logicians, philosophers of mathematics, and mathematicians concerned with the foundations of the discipline

Models for modalities. Selected essays by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

24 editions published between 1969 and 1975 in 5 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers collected in this volume were written over a period of some eight or nine years, with some still earlier material incorporated in one of them. Publishing them under the same cover does not make a con­ tinuous book of them. The papers are thematically connected with each other, however, in a way which has led me to think that they can naturally be grouped together. In any list of philosophically important concepts, those falling within the range of application of modal logic will rank high in interest. They include necessity, possibility, obligation, permission, knowledge, belief, perception, memory, hoping, and striving, to mention just a few of the more obvious ones. When a satisfactory semantics (in the sense of Tarski and Carnap) was first developed for modal logic, a fascinating new set of methods and ideas was thus made available for philosophical studies. The pioneers of this model theory of modality include prominently Stig Kanger and Saul Kripke. Several others were working in the same area independently and more or less concurrently. Some of the older papers in this collection, especially 'Quantification and Modality' and 'Modes of Modality', serve to clarify some of the main possibilities in the semantics of modal logics in general

Game-theoretical semantics : essays on semantics by Esa Saarinen( Book )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of studies applying game-theoretical concepts and ideas to analysing the semantics of natural language and some formal languages. The bulk of the book consists of several papers by Hintikka, Carlson and Saarinen and discusses several of the central problems of the semantics of natural language. The topics covered are the semantics of natural language quantifiers, conditionals, pronouns and anaphora more generally. Hintikkas famous essay presenting examples of "branching quantifier structures" in English, as well as one formulating his "any-every thesis", are included. The book also includes Hintikkas closely argued philosophical discussion of the relationships between the new semantical games with the language games of Wittgenstein. Other papers apply the game-theoretical approach to formal languages including tense logics and tense anaphora (Saarinen), deontic logic and Ross paradox (Hintikka), and usual predicate logic (Rantala). The latter amounts to an explication of the "impossible possible" worlds as is shown in Hintikkas concluding paper
Approaches to natural language : proceedings of the 1970 Stanford workshop on grammar and semantics by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

24 editions published between 1972 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers and comments published in the present volume represent the proceedings of a research workshop on the grammar and semantics of natural languages held at Stanford University in the fall of 1970. The workshop met first for three days in September and then for a period of two days in November for extended discussion and analysis. The workshop was sponsored by the Committee on Basic Research in Education, which has been funded by the United States Office of Education through a grant to the National Academy of Education and the National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council. We acknowledge with pleasure the sponsorship which made possible a series oflively and stimulating meetings that were both enjoyable and instructive for the three of us, and, we hope, for most of the participants, including a number of local linguists and philosophers who did not contribute papers but actively joined in the discussion. One of the central participants in the workshop was Richard Montague. We record our sense of loss at his tragic death early in 1971, and we dedicate this volume to his memory. None of the papers in the present volume discusses explicitly problems of education. In our view such a discussion is neither necessary nor sufficient for a contribution to basic research in education. There are in fact good reasons why the kind of work reported in the present volume constitutes an important aspect of basic research in education

Information and inference by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

22 editions published between 1920 and 1970 in English and Dutch and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last 25 years, the concept of information has played a crucial role in communication theory, so much so that the terms information theory and communication theory are sometimes used almost interchangeably. It seems to us, however, that the notion of information is also destined to render valuable services to the student of induction and probability, of learning and reinforcement, of semantic meaning and deductive inference, as~well as of scientific method in general. The present volume is an attempt to illustrate some of these uses of information concepts. In 'On Semantic Information' Hintikka summarizes some of his and his associates' recent work on information and induction, and comments briefly on its philosophical suggestions. Jamison surveys from the sub jectivistic point of view some recent results in 'Bayesian Information Usage'. Rosenkrantz analyzes the information obtained by experimen tation from the Bayesian and Neyman-Pearson standpoints, and also from the standpoint of entropy and related concepts. The much-debated principle of total evidence prompts Hilpinen to examine the problem of measuring the information yield of observations in his paper 'On the Information Provided by Observations'. Pietarinen addresses himself to the more general task of evaluating the systematizing ('explanatory') power of hypotheses and theories, a task which quickly leads him to information concepts. Domotor develops a qualitative theory of information and entropy. His paper gives what is probably the first axiomatization of a general qualitative theory of information adequate to guarantee a numerical representation of the standard sort
