(p.150) 5 Living with Naturalism
Quine versus Davidson

Gary Kemp

Oxford University Press

The final chapter examines and dissipates certain pressures that are often felt to afflict Quine or his views. These include the charge that any such view, being a view of anti‐realism about meaning, is self-refuting, as according to a well‐known argument by Paul Boghossian; and worries that the view cannot account for normativity or apparent analyticities. The book closes with a discussion of what might called the world-view of naturalism—the place of vagueness, of intuition, and of the role of regimented language.

Keywords:   Quine, anti‐realism, Boghossian, swampman, analyticity, normativity, vagueness, intuition, regimentation
