Quine

Guido Bonino, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, Jun 04, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I cite Quine from time to time in my work. He is broadly influential on my thought, but I cite in particular (a) his ideas on the indeterminacy of translation, which shows (I think) that our understanding of meaning is tentative, and based in culture and practice, and (b) his concept of the 'web of belief', which is a semantical representation of the ideas others have had on networks.
