This coming week our focus will be Chapter Two of Quine’s Word and Object. For Monday, read §§7-11. Read the rest of the chapter for Wednesday. A good secondary resource is Chapter 10 of Soames’ Philosophical Analysis in the Twentieth Century, vol. 2.
For background reading, you can look at Quine’s ‘Two Dogmas of Empiricism’.
I’ve placed electronic copies of the Quine readings in the course Dropbox folder.
