Product description


This lucid, closely argued, and stimulating book offers Horwich's latest formulation and defence of his Use Theory of Meaning . . . there is a great deal of interesting and nuanced argument on almost every page of this thought-provoking book, including detailed responses to important semantic theorists such as Chomsky, Davidson, Dummett, Fodor, Grice, Kripke, Putnam, and Quine. For anyone interested in the prospects for a use-based theory of meaning, or a naturalistic reduction of semantics, or who wants a clear sense of current issues at the cutting-edge of philosophy of language, Horwich's book is required reading. (David Macarthur, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
