Philosophy of language is the branch of philosophy that examines the nature of meaning, the relationship of language to reality, and the ways in which we use, learn, and understand language. The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Languageprovides a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the field, charting its history and key figures and movements, and addressing enduring questions and contemporary research in the philosophy of language. Unique to this Companionis clear coverage of research from the related disciplines of formal logic and linguistics, and discussion of the applications of work done in the philosophy of language to metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind. Organized thematically, the Companionis divided into seven sections: Parts of Speech; Logic for Philosophy of Language; Philosophy of Language for the Rest of Philosophy; Aspects of Language; Foundations of Semantics; Methodology; and Historical Perspectives. Comprised of 74 never-before-published essays from leading scholars--including Kit Fine, Kai von Fintel, Scott Soames, Robert Stainton, Jason Stanley and Stephen Stich--the Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Languagepromises to be the most comprehensive and authoritative resource for students and scholars alike.
