Jonathan Cohen. From the dust jacket: "In this book Dr. Jardine proposes a pragmatic account of truth as the eventually settled verdict of a certain idealized type of inquiry. In the context of this pragmatic account he offers a confirmation of the truth amassing nature of science by appeal to historical prosesses of resolution of questions, avoidance of error, and donmination of divergent lines of inquiry". Three page index of names and a 3 page index of subjects at the back. Previous owner's address label on the front free end paper and that same owner has marked pages 4 to 16 with inked check marks and stars in the margins with one phrase underlined on page 8. Otherwise clean and tight binding and with very little sign that the reader ever made it past page 16. The unclipped dust jacket shows a trace of wear to the head edge.
