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.
