Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
The distinguished philosopher of language, François Recanati, has proposed
a wide-ranging truth-conditional model of pragmatics. In this collection,
various aspects of his theories are addressed by distinguished
contributors, and are then commented on or answered by Recanati himself so
that the reader is drawn into the central debate within philosophy of
language and cognitive science as to what kind of pragmatics system is needed.
