Title: The Philosophy of David Kaplan
Written By: Joseph Almog
Paolo Leonardi

David Kaplan's intellectual influence on 20th century analytic philosophy
has been transformative. He introduced lasting innovations in the
philosophy of language and philosophical logic. Just as important, however,
is Kaplan's way of doing philosophy; generous but incisive, his profoundly
interactive style mentored countless generations of students, many of whom
contribute to this volume.

This volume collects new, previously unpublished articles on Kaplan,
analyzing a broad spectrum of topics ranging from cutting edge linguistics
and the philosophy of mathematics, to metaphysics, the foundations of
pragmatics, and the theory of communication.

With its historical introduction and personal tributes, The Philosophy of
David Kaplan also reveals much of Kaplan's life and times, highlighting the
key players of analytic philosophy of the last century, and underscoring
Kaplan's substantial impact on contemporary philosophy.
