The first volume of Putnam's Philosophical Papers is often overlooked or even neglected. This is a shame, as in this papers Putnam is a hardcore realist who has lots of things to say. Indeed, trying to understand why this 'realist' Putnam lately endorsed a form of 'internal realism' (which, for many, is no realism at all) would be extremely interesting.
