Written By: MarthaIGibson
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=0631226567
Description:

From Naming to Saying explores the classic question of the unity of the proposition, combining an historical approach with contemporary causal theories to offer a unique and novel solution.

Presents compelling and sophisticated answers to questions about how language represents the world.
Defends a novel approach to the classical question about the unity of the proposition.
Examines three key historical theories: Frege’s doctrine of concept and object, Russell’s analysis of the sentence, and Wittgenstein’s picture theory of meaning.
Combines an historical approach with discussion and defense of a contemporary causal theory of the unity of the proposition.
Establishes a view compatible with, though not dependent on, a causal theory of meaning.
