Verificationism has been a hallmark of logical empiricism. According to this principle, a sentence is insignificant in a certain sense if its truth value cannot be determined. Although logical empiricists strove for decades to develop an adequate principle of verification, they failed to resolve its problems. This led to a general abandonment of the verificationist project in the early 1960s. In the last 50 years, this view has received tremendously bad press. Today it is mostly regarded as an outdated historical concept. Theories that have evolved since the abandonment of verificationism can, however, help overcome some of its key problems. More specifically, an adequate criterion of significance can be derived from a combination of modern theories of justification and belief revision, along with a formal semantics for counterfactuals. In view of these potential improvements, the abandonment of verificationism appears premature. Half a century following its decline, it might be about time to revisit this disreputable view. The author argues in favor of a weak form of verificationism. This approach could be referred to as minimal verificationism, as it involves a weakening of traditional verificationist principles in various respects while maintaining their core idea.

With the help of this long-awaited comprehensive grammar of Manchu, the official language in China during the Qing dynasty, access can be gained to the numerous official documents of more than 250 years of Chinese history immediately preceding the Republic. Taking into full account the scholarship on the subject from both China and Russia, the volume provides full coverage of the Manchu writing system, morphology and phonology. Special attention is given to syntax, until recently a conspicuous hiatus in Manchu linguistic studies. Also dealt with is Sibe, which the author convincingly argues to be a direct successor of Manchu vernacular, and its relation with classical Manchu. Many grammatical problems of Manchu are considered in a wider framework of the Manchu-Tungusic languages - the group to which Manchu belongs.Dr. Gorelova s grammar is a true reference work, indispensable for students of (Qing) China and Oriental languages.
