Book Information

   

Title: Meaning and Use
Edited By: A. Margalit
Series Title: Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy 3
Description:

This book contains a collection of papers presented at the Second
Jerusalem Philosophical Encounter and is dedicated to the late Yehoshua
Bar-Hillel. The topic of the symposium was Meaning and Use. For
Bar-Hillel the question "meaning or use?" was of great importance and of
which the issues dominated his intellectual life. Bar-Hillel's answer to
this question, in his later years, can be summed up by the title Meaning
and Use. Neither approach deserves priority, each is equally necessary,
and they both complement each other.

This collection serves as an expression, of the deepest respect and love
with which his memory is treasured by his friends, colleagues and
students.
