Abstract:

>From Naming to Saying explores the classic question of the unity of
the proposition, combining an historical approach with contemporary
causal theories to offer a unique and novel solution.

Presents compelling and sophisticated answers to questions about how
language represents the world. Defends a novel approach to the
classical question about the unity of the proposition. Examines three
key historical theories: Frege's doctrine of concept and object,
Russell's analysis of the sentence, and Wittgenstein's picture theory
of meaning. Combines an historical approach with discussion and
defense of a contemporary causal theory of the unity of the
proposition. Establishes a view compatible with, though not dependent
on, a causal theory of meaning.
