Linguistic representation by Jay F Rosenberg( Book )

27 editions published between 1974 and 1981 in English and Dutch and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is nominally about linguistic representation. But, since it is we who do the representing, it is also about us. And, since it is the universe which we represent, it is also about the universe. In the end, then, this book is about everything, which, since it is a philosophy book, is as it should be. I recognize that it is nowadays unfashionable to write books about every thing. Philosophers of language, it will be said, ought to stick to writing about language; philosophers of science, to writing about science; epis temologists, to writing about knowing; and so on. The real world, however, perversely refuses to carve itself up so neatly, and, although I recognize that the real w, orld is nowadays also unfashionable, in the end I judged that one might get closer to the truth of various matters by going along with it. So I have done so. lt was Wilfrid Sellars who initially convinced me of the virtues of this way of proceeding. At this point one normally says something like "The debt that this book owes him is immense". I would say it too, were it not to understate the case, From Wilfrid, I learned to think about things. If the upshot of my thinking tends, as it obviously does, to show a general con silience with the upshot of his, it is primarily because he is so very good at it - and he had a head start
Accessing Kant : a relaxed introduction to the Critique of pure reason by Jay F Rosenberg( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jay Rosenberg introduces Immanuel Kant's masterwork, the Critique of Pure Reason, from a 'relaxed' problem-oriented perspective which treats Kant as an especially insightful practising philosopher, from whom we still have much to learn, intelligently and creatively responding to significant questions that transcend his work's historical setting. Rosenberg's main project is to command a clear view of how Kant understands various perennial problems, how he attempts to resolve them, and to what extent he succeeds. The constructive portions of the First Critique - the Aesthetic and Analytic - are explored in detail; the Paralogisms and Antinomies more briefly

8 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One world and our knowledge of it : the problematic of realism in post-Kantian perspective by Jay F Rosenberg( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy, Aristotle is well known to have said, begins in wonder. So, of course, does everything else. Astronomy begins in wonder at the moving lights in the sky; biology, in wonder at the living creatures of the earth; psychology, in wonder at the intricacies and eccentricities of our distinctively human form of life. So, at best, wonder is only a necessary condition for philosophy. What. is peculiar about philosophers is what we are inclined to wonder about. We wonder about everything. In particular, we wonder about astron omy and biology and psychology (and about philosophy) - about whether and how such disciplines are possible and, crucially, about whether and how such disciplines fit together. We don't just wonder about everything. We wonder about everything all at once. Philosophers are general practitioners. Things stand ill with our disciplme today. There was quite recently at large in America an occasional publication under the title Jobs in Philosophy. The title rested upon a confusion, and the publication furthered the confusion upon which it rested. For it did not, in fact, list jobs in philosophy. It couldn't
Thinking about knowing by Jay F Rosenberg( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jay Rosenberg offers a systematic philosophical theory of knowledge responsive to the fact that we engage the world from a perspective within it. He thus calls into question many received ideas regarding the relationships among concepts of knowledge such as belief and truth
Beyond formalism : naming and necessity for human beings by Jay F Rosenberg( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal claims advanced in Saul Kripke's classic 1972 work, Naming and Necessity, quickly acquired the status of largely uncontested tenets in the philosophy of language and logic. Jay Rosenberg belongs to the minority of scholars who have maintained a more skeptical attitude towards Kripke's work. In Beyond Formalism, he draws attention to significant problems implicit in Kripke's views regarding necessity, reference, and belief. Following his analysis of the shortcomings of both "descriptivist" and "causal-historical" approaches to nominal reference, the author sketches his own "epistemic" account of proper names. In Rosenberg's view, names should not be understood as devices for empirically relating language users, but as instruments for structuring the transmission and accumulation of descriptive content, issuing from various forms of inquiry, within a linguistic community

4 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and German and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Jay Roseberg's introductory dialogue, four bright students explore a number of the central topics and problems of contemporary epistemology - skepticism and certainty, internalism and externalism, foundationalism and coherentism, and the nature and limits of justification. Their wide-ranging discussion highlights many of the vivid and imaginative thought-experiments that have shaped both classical and contemporary reflections on the scope and character of our knowledge of the world."--Jacket
