From Carnap and Quine to Hilary Putnam

Today I gave a lecture at the VU on Hilary Putnam's deflationary account of metaphysics. I discussed Putnam's position within the context of the mid-twentieth century debate on the status of ontology between Rudolf Carnap, the chief architect of logical positivism, and Willard Van Orman Quine. The slides are available on my website.
