Presentation copy to Quine

First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to the American philosopher Willard Van Orman Quine (1908-2000), "To Van, with warm regards Ernest". Ernest Nagel (1901-1985) was a major contributor to the field of logical positivism, a field that influenced Quine, yet also one that he criticized. Logic Without Metaphysics is a collection of essays and reviews, all but one previously published, with an introduction by Nagel in which he provides a neat summary of his views and addresses the particular philosophical challenges presented during the inter-war years.
