Abstract:

Paul Horwich, one of the world's most distinguished philosophers, develops
in this book his highly original deflationary conception of language. His
main aim in Reflections on Meaning is to explain how mere noises, marks,
gestures, and mental symbols are able to capture the world - that is, how
words and sentences (in whatever medium) come to mean what they do, to
stand for certain things, to be true or false of reality. His answer is an
innovative development of Wittgenstein's idea that the meaning of a term is
nothing more than its use.

Linguistic Field(s): Philosophy of Language
                            Pragmatics
                            Semantics
