Abstract:

The ten volumes of Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights focus on the
most salient topics in the field of pragmatics, thus dividing its wide
interdisciplinary spectrum in a transparent and manageable way. While the
other volumes select specific cognitive, grammatical, social, cultural,
variational, interactional, or discursive angles, this 10th volume focuses on
the interface between pragmatics and philosophy and reviews the
philosophical background from which pragmatics has taken inspiration and
with which it is constantly confronted. It provides the reader with information
about authors relevant to the development of pragmatics, trends or areas in
philosophy that are relevant for the definition of the main concepts in
pragmatics or the characterization of its cultural context, the neighbouring
field of semantics (with particular respect to truth-conditional semantics and
some main branches of formal semantics), and recent philosophical debates
that involve pragmatic notions such as indexicality and context. While most
of the references are to the analytic philosophical field, also perspectives in
so-called continental philosophy are taken into account. The introductory
chapter outlines some unifying routes of reflection as regards meaning,
speech as action, and self and mind, and suggests some connections
between doing pragmatics and doing philosophy.
