Table of Contents 22 Dec. 2012
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I haven't ordered this, but i thought other people might be interested in what was in here and what was different between this and the previous edition. I feel pretty justified in my 5 star review just based on this table of contents.

I copied this from the Oxford University Press website.

This anthology was very helpful in my study of philosophy of language. The articles by Kripke on Wittgenstein, Quine, and Davidson are especially interesting. For a nice course on some of the topics found in this anthology, visit:
