Language and Reality:
An Introduction to the Philosophy of Language, second edition

Michael Devitt and Kim Sterelny


What is language? How does it relate to the world? How does it relate
to the mind? Should our view of language influence our view of the
world? These are among the central issues covered in this spirited and
unusually clear introduction to the philosophy of language.


Making no pretense of neutrality, Michael Devitt and Kim Sterelny take
a definite theoretical stance. Central to that stance is
naturalism--that is, they treat a philosophical theory of language as
an empirical theory like any other and see people as nothing but
complex parts of the physical world. This leads them, controversially,
to a deflationary view of the significance of the study of language:
they dismiss the idea that the philosophy of language should be
preeminent in philosophy.


This successful textbook has been extensively rewritten for the second
edition to reflect recent developments in the field.


Michael Devitt is Professor of Philosophy at the University of
Maryland. Kim Sterelny is Reader in Philosophy at the Victoria
University of Wellington, New Zealand.
