Abstract:

Ernie Lepore and Jerry Fodor have published a series of original and
controversial essays on issues relating to compositionality in
language and mind; they have now revised them all for publication
together in this volume. Compositionality is the following aspect of a
system of representation: the complex symbols in the system inherit
their syntactic and semantic properties from the primitive symbols of
the system. Fodor and Lepore argue that compositionality determines
what view we must take of the nature of concepts. Anyone trying to
figure out how language and mind work must take account of this
challenging work by two leading figures in the field.

Lingfield(s): Pragmatics
