The subject matter of each lies at the interface of metaphysics, logic, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of language. The style is both entertaining and. Graham Oppy's book is a wide-ranging discussion of the role played by the infinite in various fields of study, including pure mathematics, physics, probability theory, mereology, and related fields, as well as an examination of various philosophical puzzles posed by the infinite, such as the possibility of so-called super-tasks (performing an infinite number of operations in a finite time). — Michael J. Loux & Dean W. Zimmerman, The Oxford Handbook of Metaphysics, p. 4. The purpose of Quine's strategy is to determine just how the ontological commitment of a theory is to be found. Quine argued that the only ontologically committing expressions are variables bound by a first-order existential quantifier, and natural language expressions which were formalized using variables bound.

Education. He received his bachelor's degree and master's degree from New York University and his PhD from the City University of New York.. Philosophical work. Azzouni is currently working on the philosophy of mathematics (he holds a degree in mathematics), science, logic, language and in areas of metaphysics, epistemology, and acknowledges a debt to Willard Van Orman Quine.
