Hans Herzberger, now retired and emeritus professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto, had a major influence over a generation of philosophers who knew him as a colleague or teacher. In hid honour, and with appreciation for Dr. Herzberger's scholarship and personal influence, this volume is a collection of essays from a number of prominent philosophers who worked with him. Represented here are: Isaac Levi, Calvin Normore, Jamie Tappenden, Alasdair Urquhart, Achille Varzi, and Steven Yablo. This eclectic set of essays covers a large range of issues, including rational choice theory, Frege scholarship and interpretation, the nature of truth, the inexpressible and the unknowable, and fundamental ontology. Each essay is original and appears here for the first time. They are fresh, illuminating, and accessible explorations of topics of central importance in philosophy, and all dear to the heart of Hans Herzberger. This is the only book devoted to themes drawn from the work of Hans Herzberger, and it covers a range of topics of central importance in philosophy, across value theory, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and logic.
