Practical Tortoise Raising: and other philosophical essays

Simon Blackburn


This book is a collection of sixteen chapters written over the last twenty years. They include chapters on quasi-realism and practical reasoning, but range over many other topics, including trust, dilemmas, fiction, semantics, pragmatism, observation, and the nature of reason. This is the first book linking well-known expressivist work on practical reason to the wider concerns of contemporary pragmatism.

Keywords: trust, dilemmas, fiction, semantics, expressivism, pragmatism, observation, reason
