Masses of Formal Philosophy is an outgrowth of Formal Philosophy. That book gathered the responses of some of the most prominent formal philosophers to five relatively open and broad questions initiating a discussion of metaphilosophical themes and problems surrounding the use of formal methods in philosophy. Including contributions from a wide range of philosophers, Masses of Formal Philosophy contains important new responses to the original five questions.
From the Inside Flap
Formal Philosophy, in its sprawling and sometimes endearing
way, captures the multiplicity of origin, aim and justification of the use
of formal methods in philosophy. Whether philosophers come to formal
methods reluctantly, forced to do so by the need for precision or by the
nature of the problems studied, or with joy, sensing that abstract
structures provide the key to understanding the world about us, they agree
about the intellectual power afforded by such methods, and the pitfalls
that surround them. Anyone interested in the methods of philosophy should
read this book.
-- John Cantwell, review in Theoria, 2007
