Abstract:

What is meaning? How is linguistic communication possible? What is the nature
of language? What is the relationship between language and the world? How do
metaphors work? The Philosophy of Language, Sixth Edition, is an excellent
introduction to such fundamental questions.

Incorporating insights from new coeditor David Sosa, the sixth edition
collects forty-eight of the most important articles in the field, making it
the most up-to-date and comprehensive volume on the subject. Revised to
address changing trends and contemporary developments, the sixth edition
features eighteen new articles, including influential work by Kent Bach, Paul
Boghossian, M. A. E. Dummett, Delia Graff Fara, Hartry Field, H. P. Grice and
P.F. Strawson, Carl G. Hempel, Saul Kripke, Benson Mates, Hilary Putnam, Diana
Raffman, Nathan Salmon, Stephen Schiffer, John R. Searle, Roy Sorenson, David
Sosa, Dennis Stampe, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. A general introduction and
introductions to each section give students background to the issues and
explain the connections between them. A bibliography of suggested further
reading follows each section.
