Quine was a teacher of logic and set theory. Quine was famous for his position that first order logic is the only kind worthy of the name, and developed his own system of mathematics and set theory, known as New Foundations. In philosophy of mathematics , he and his Harvard colleague Hilary Putnam developed the " Quine—Putnam indispensability thesis ," an argument for the reality of mathematical entities. This led to his famous quip that " philosophy of science is philosophy enough. His major writings include the papers "On What There Is", which elucidated Bertrand Russell 's theory of descriptions and contains Quine's famous dictum of ontological commitment, "To be is to be the value of a variable ", and " Two Dogmas of Empiricism " which attacked the traditional analytic-synthetic distinction and reductionism, undermining the then-popular logical positivism , advocating instead a form of semantic holism. They also include the books The Web of Belief , which advocates a kind of coherentism , and Word and Object , which further developed these positions and introduced Quine's famous indeterminacy of translation thesis, advocating a behaviorist theory of meaning.

Such abuse of rationality this misreading suggests can hardly count as epistemology, let alone be compared with that of Quine.
