Prof. Stig Andur Pedersen did every member of the philosophical community a major service when he launched PHINEWS with his colleague Vincent F. Hendricks. PHINEWS is not a dry newsletter
which publishes nothing but announcements and lists of books. Each issue contains a long and detailed paper on a well chosen topic of general interest which sets the stage for conferences, discussions or individual research projects. It plays a significant role as a remedy to the fragmentation of science which Prof. Johan van
Benthem identified as one of the problems to which current scientific organization is confronted. I would like to take the opportunity of Prof.Stig Andur Pedersen sixtieth birthday to thank him for his excellent initiative.
- Paul Gochet

Dear Andur, best wishes on the occasion of your 60th birthday. You are doing many fine things coming out of your organization in Roskilde that aregreatly appreciated. Keep up the good work!
- Solomon Feferman

Dear Professor Pedersen. It gives me great pleasure to send you my warmest well wishes for your birthday. I salute the fine work for logic - logic in general and for logic in Denmark in particular - that you and Vincent F. Hendricks have done and are doing. May you have
many more years in which to continue that important mission!
- Krister Segerberg

Abstract

This collection of essays in honor of Prof. Stig Andur Pedersen's 60th Birthday spans over a broad scope of topics, ranging from mathematical modelling over realism in philosophy of science to an analysis of apology after medical mistakes. The unusually broad
range is a fair but still inadequate reflection of the work of Stig Andur Pedersen, a philosopher and scientist whose range of interests, abilities and production is itself unusually broad.
