Following the maverick tradition in the philosophy of science, Carlo Cellucci gradually came to the conclusion that logic can only fulfill its role in mathematics, science and philosophy if it helps us to answer this question. He argues that mathematical logic is inadequate and that we need a new logic, framed in a naturalistic conception of knowledge and philosophy-the heuristic conception.This path from logic to a naturalistic conception of knowledge and philosophy explains the title, From a Heuristic Point of View, which recalls the celebrated collection of essays, From a Logical Point of View, by Willard Van Orman Quine, the father of modern naturalized epistemology.

The word heuristic points to Celluccis favorite theme and the main difference between him and Quine: the emphasis on discovery and building a logic for generating new knowledge.This book is a collection of essays from leading figures in this field who discuss, criticize, or expand on the main topics in Celluccis work, dealing with some of the most challenging questions in logic, science and philosophy.
