Abstract:

In this fascinating work, Scott Soames offers a new conception of the
relationship between linguistic meaning and assertions made by
utterances. He gives meanings of proper names and natural kind
predicates and explains their use in attitude ascriptions. He also
demonstrates the irrelevance of rigid designation in understanding why
theoretical identities containing such predicates are necessary, if
true.
