Abstract:

*Develops a cognitivist/mentalist theory of meaning
*Examines the nature of hate speech
*Explores the nature of ambiguity
*Proposes a new solution to semantic paradoxes

According to truth-conditional semantics, to explain the meaning of a
statement is to specify the conditions necessary and sufficient for its
truth. This book develops a more radical mentalist semantics by shifting
the object of semantic inquiry. Classical semantics analyzes an abstract
sentence or utterance such as "Grass is green"; in attitudinal semantics
the object of inquiry is a propositional attitude such as "Speaker
so-and-so thinks grass is green".

Linguistic Field(s): Philosophy of Language
