Fifty Years of Events: An Annotated Bibliography 1947 to 1997
Now freely available in electronic format!
Roberto Casati & Achille C. Varzi, Editors
This major bibliography offers a comprehensive overview of the recent
literature on the nature of events and the place they occupy in our
conceptual scheme. The subject has received extensive consideration in
the philosophical debate over the last few decades, with ramifications
reaching far into the domains of allied disciplines such as linguistics
and the cognitive sciences. The starting point for this work is Hans Reichenbach's pioneering
contribution on the logical form of action sentences, and the broad scope
includes entries from the philosophy of action, the philosophy of mind,
the philosophy of space, time, and causation, and situation theory. Approximately 1,850
entries from more than 900 authors are listed in alphabetical/chronological
order by author, and most entries are annotated (sometimes including brief
quotations and cross-references). This excellent work also includes Subject, Name,
and Second and Subsequent Authors indexes.
