Willard Van Orman Quine
Willard Quine’s work in logic broadened into philosophy. He articulated a deeply systematic scientific world view which rejects non-empirical knowledge and maintains that philosophy itself is continuous with natural science. His essay “Two Dogmas of Empiricism” (1951) and book Word and Object (1960) are classics of 20th century philosophy. Quine’s achievements brought him many honors, including honorary degrees from seventeen universities in seven countries. the Rolf Schock Prize in 1993 and Kyoto Prize in 1996. Quine died on December 25, 2000.
