Reference and the Rational Mind
Heftet / 2004 / Engelsk
Levering 3-20 dager
Referentialism has underappreciated consequences for our misunderstanding of the ways in which mind, language and world relate to one another. In exploring these consequences, this book defends a version of referentialism about names, demonstratives and indexicals, in a manner appropriate for scholars and students in philosophy or the cognitive sciences. To demonstrate his view, Kenneth A. Taylor offers original and provocative accounts of a wide variety of semantic, pragmatic and psychological phenomena, such as empty names, proportional attitude contexts, the nature of concepts, and the ultimate source and nature of normativity.
