ResumenAccording to Gibson, Quine's world-view is a naturalistic behaviourism which rejects transcendental justifications, intentions and irreducibly mental entities. Gibson also makes a crisp dichotomy of the ontological and the epistemological stand-points. Gibson's construal depicts Quine's thought as some sort of nonaggregative perspectivism maintaining in effect that what we say is true or not according as whether we are saying it in a particular vein or in a different vein. Gibson says that Quine's philosophy transcends the realist-idealist dichotomy. The reviewer objects that in fact Quine hesitates on the issue of realism and relativism, for some things he maintains commit him to relativism while other ideas he cherishes would rather push him towards realism. If realism is to carry the day, remnants of verificationism must be cast off, which would mean giving up, or at least softening down, indeterminacy of translation and ontological relativity.
