Title: Insensitive Semantics
Subtitle: A Defense of Semantic Minimalism and Speech Act Pluralism
Written By: Herman Cappelen
Ernest Lepore
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/1405126752
Description:

Insensitive Semantics is an overview of and contribution to the debates
about how to accommodate context sensitivity within a theory of human
communication, investigating the effects of context on communicative
interaction and, as a corollary, what a context of utterance is and what it
is to be in one.

- Provides detailed and wide-ranging overviews of the central positions and
arguments surrounding contextualism

- Addresses broad and varied aspects of the distinction between the
semantic and non-semantic content of language

- Defends a distinctive and explanatorily powerful combination of semantic
minimalism and speech act pluralism

- Confronts core problems which not only run to the heart of philosophy of
language and linguistics, but which arise in epistemology, metaphysics, and
moral philosophy as well
