Professor Quine talks to Rudolf Fara, Executive Director of the international charity Philosophy in Britain, about family background and his earliest philosophical thoughts. He recalls his years as an undergraduate at Oberlin, graduate study at Harvard under A.N. Whitehead and his meeting with Bertrand Russell. He discusses his exposure to the logical positivists of the Vienna Circle, particularly Rudolf Carnap, and to the Polish logicians of the Lvov-Warsaw School.
