Philosophy of logics by Susan Haack( Book )
44 editions published between 1978 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first systematic exposition of all the central topics in the philosophy of logic, Susan Haack's book has established an international reputation (translated into five languages) for its accessibility, clarity, conciseness, orderliness, and range as well as for its thorough scholarship and careful analyses. Haack discusses the scope and purpose of logic, validity, truth-functions, quantification and ontology, names, descriptions, truth, truth-bearers, the set-theoretical and semantic paradoxes, and modality. She also explores the motivations for a whole range of nonclassical systems of logic, including many-valued logics, fuzzy logic, modal and tense logics, and relevance logics

17 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Exposes the evasions of apologists for religious resistance to scientific advances; weighs the benefits and the dangers of technology, tracks the efforts of the legal system to make the best use of scientific testimony, and tackles predictions of the eventual culmination, or annihilation, of the scientific enterprise."--BOOK JACKET
Manifesto of a passionate moderate : unfashionable essays by Susan Haack( Book )
12 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Forthright and wryly humorous, philosopher Susan Haack deploys her analytic skills on some of the most highly charged cultural and social debates of recent years. Relativism, multiculturalism, feminism, affirmative action, pragmatisms old and new, science, literature, the future of the academy and of philosophy itself - all come under her keen scrutiny in Manifesto of a Passionate Moderate. Haack's goal in these essays is to get beyond fads, fashions, obfuscations, and false dichotomies to the central and most essential questions - whether there is such a thing as truth, whether honest inquiry is possible or desirable, whether there is a real difference between knowledge and propaganda. There is, Haack argues; but serious inquiry is difficult and demanding, evidence can be ambiguous or misleading, and what passes for truth is sometimes false

Putting philosophy to work : inquiry and its place in culture : essays on science, religion, law, literature, and life by Susan Haack( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This wide-ranging collection of Susan Haack's new and recent essays offers applied philosophy in a new key and a fresh voice - subtle, penetrating analyses of vital issues about science, society, religion, law, literature, even about what makes a life meaningful." "Whether she is telling the "sad, sleazy saga" of a drug company's efforts to suppress the unfavorable results of a clinical trial it had funded, disentangling the many senses of "coherent," or reflecting on the growth of intellectual character, Haack writes with the clarity, verve, and wit her readers have come to expect."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Evidence matters : science, proof, and truth in the law by Susan Haack( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Is truth in the law just plain truth - or something sui generis? Is a trial a search for truth? Do adversarial procedures and exclusionary rules of evidence enable, or impede, the accurate determination of factual issues? Can degrees of proof be identified with mathematical probabilities? What role can statistical evidence properly play? How can courts best handle the scientific testimony on which cases sometimes turn? How are they to distinguish reliable scientific testimony from unreliable hokum? The dozen interdisciplinary essays collected here explore a whole nexus of such questions about science, proof, and truth in the law. With her characteristic clarity and verve, in these essays Haack brings her original and distinctive work in theory of knowledge and philosophy of science to bear on real-life legal issues. She includes detailed analyses of a wide variety of cases and lucid summaries of relevant scientific work, of the many roles of the scientific peer-review system, and of relevant legal developments"--
