von Dietze, Eric. Review of Stefano Gattei's THOMAS KUHN'S LINGUISTIC TURN AND THE LEGACY OF LOGICAL EMPIRICISM. MOR (July 2009).
Gattei, Stefano. Thomas Kuhn's 'Linguistic Turn' and the Legacy of Logical Empiricism. Aldershot: Ashgate, 2008. Gattei's contribution is essentially an approach from the history of ideas as well as philosophical engagement. He unpacks Kuhn's notion of incommensurability and makes it accessible; he shows how the ideas have come together, how different individuals have contributed and how the debate has developed over time. This book is written by a philosopher who understands the issues and the nuances of key ideas, and who has also taken time to engage with the material from an historical perspective. . . .
