Summary

Philosophy of Languageprovides students with an accessible yet detailed introduction to the major issues and thinkers in the subject. Ideal for use on undergraduate courses, butalso of value for postgraduate students, the structure and content of this textbook closely reflect the way the philosophy of language is taught andstudied. Thematically structured, the book introduces the work of leading thinkers whohave contributed to the discipline, including Frege, Russell, Strawson, Grice,Quine, Davidson and Lewis. The author examines key distinctions in thephilosophy of language, including sense and reference, sense and force, descriptionsand names, semantics and pragmatics, extensional, intensional, andhyperintensional contexts, and the problems which these distinctions involve. Chris Daly's cogent and thorough analysis is supplemented by student-friendlyfeatures, including chapter summaries, questions for discussion, guides tofurther reading, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography.
