William Warren Bartley, III, bibliography

I compiled this bibliography while researching the work of William Warren Bartley, III (2 October 1934 – 5 February 1990). One of the fruits of this research was my paper "On Critical and Pancritical Rationalism" published in Philosophy of the Social Sciences; subscribers to Philosophy of the Social Sciences can read "On Critical and Pancritical Rationalism" online; a summary is available on this website. Another product of that research was my earlier paper "Constructing a Comprehensively Anti-justificationist Position"; a PDF version of that paper is available on this website, as is the the original abstract. Also available are summaries of the characterisations I present in that paper of anti-justificationism and justificationism.

As far as possible, I have obtained bibliographical information from the published material itself, but this hasn't always proved to be possible. When I haven't been able to do that, I've taken the bibliographical information from Bartley's own writings. However, I have learnt from experience that Bartley's references to his own work are not always completely accurate. If you do notice any mistakes or omissions in this bibliography, please let me know at antoni.dillerREMOVE@cantabREMOVE.net giving as much detail as possible.
