“Providing up-to-date, in-depth coverage of the central question, and written and edited by some of the foremost practitioners in the field, this timely new edition will no doubt be a go-to reference for anyone with a serious interest in the philosophy of language.” Kathrin Glüer-Pagin, Stockholm University Now published in two volumes, the second edition of the best-selling Companion to the Philosophy of Language provides a complete survey of contemporary philosophy of language. The Companion has been greatly extended and now includes a monumental 17 new essays – with topics chosen by the editors, who curated suggestions from current contributors – and almost all of the 25 original chapters have been updated to take account of recent developments in the field. In addition to providing a synoptic view of the key issues, figures, concepts, and debates, each essay introduces new and original contributions to ongoing debates, as well as addressing a number of new areas of interest, including two-dimensional semantics, modality and epistemic modals, and semantic relationism. The extended “state-of-the-art” chapter format allows the authors, all of whom are internationally eminent scholars in the field, to incorporate original research to a far greater degree than competitor volumes. Unrivaled in scope, this volume represents the best contemporary critical thinking relating to the philosophy of language.

"The book is about the problem of vagueness. It begins by discussing some of the existing views on vagueness and then explains why they have not been thought to be satisfactory. It then outlines a new account of vagueness, based upon the general idea that vagueness is a global rather than a local phenomenon.. In other words, the vagueness of an expression or object is not an intrinsic feature of the object or an expression but a matter of how it relates to other objects and expression. The development of this idea leads to a new semantics and logic for vagueness. The semantics and logic are then applied to a number of issues, including the sorites paradox, the transparency of mental states, and personal identity. It is shown that the view allows one to hew to a much more intuitive position on these various issues"--

Based on public lectures given by Timothy Williamson, this book proposes a theory on the nature and methodology of philosophy and rejects the ideology of the 'linguistic turn', one of the most distinctive trends of the 20th century.

Reviews are an important aspect of scholarly discussion because they help filter out which works are relevant in the yearly flood of publications and are thus influential in determining how a work is received. The IBR, published again since 1971 as an interdisciplinary, international bibliography of reviews, it is a unique source of bibliographical information. The database contains entries on over 1.2 million book reviews of literature dealing primarily with the humanities and social sciences published in 6,820, mainly European scholarly journals. Reviews of more than 560,000 scholarly works are listed. The database increases every year by 60,000 entries. Every entry contains the following information: On the work reviewed: author, title On the review: reviewer, periodical (year, edition, page, ISSN), language, subject area (in German, English, Italian) Publisher, address of journal

Two decades ago, there was a great flurry of work on the subject of truth, which subsequently set much of the agenda for future debates. Interest in the subject of truth remains unabated at all levels of inquiry, both within philosophy and from without, in both academic and popular guises. But while truth continues to be of focal interest, it seems that there have been remarkably fewer new directions since then. New Waves in Truth offers eighteen new and original research papers on truth and other alethic phenomena by twenty of the most promising young scholars working on truth today. Contributions to the volume span truth ascriptions, deflationism, realism and the correspondence theory, the value of truth, and kinds of truth and truth-apt discourse. The research programs of the contributors are beginning to reset that agenda, and each is positioned to make new waves throughout the subject.

Original essays on reference and referring by leading scholars that combine breadth of coverage with thematic unity. These fifteen original essays address the core semantic concepts of reference and referring from both philosophical and linguistic perspectives. After an introductory essay that casts current trends in reference and referring in terms of an ongoing dialogue between Fregean and Russellian approaches, the book addresses specific topics, balancing breadth of coverage with thematic unity. The contributors, all leading or emerging scholars, address trenchant neo-Fregean challenges to the direct reference position; consider what positive claims can be made about the mechanism of reference; address the role of a theory of reference within broader theoretical context; and investigate other kinds of linguistic expressions used in referring activities that may themselves be referring expressions. The topical unity and accessibility of the essays, the stage-setting introductory essay, and the comprehensive index combine to make R eference and Referring, along with the other books in the Topics in Contemporary Philosophy series, appropriate for use in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses.

Die folgenden Aristotelischen Schriften wurden herangezogen: Kategorien (Kat.), De inter pretationeiLehre vom Satz (De int.), Metaphysik (Met.), Analytica priora/Erste Analytik (An. pr.), Topik (Top.); Übersetzungen nach den Ausgaben der "Philosophischen Bibliothek", Felix Meiner Verlag, Hamburg. 2 Die lateinischen Bezeichnungen der Beziehungen gehen auf Boethius zurück (vgl. Migne 1891: 321), die graphische Darstellung mindestens auf Apuleius (vgl. Sullivan 1967, Londey/ Johanson 1987). Die vier Ecken des Quadrats wurden im Mittelalter mit den vier ersten Vokalbuchstaben "durchnumeriert", wobei den affirmativen Ecken die beiden ersten Vokale von affirmo entsprechen, den negativen die von nego. 3 Von Winston Churchill erzählt man die Anekdote, daß er einmal behauptet hat: "Die Hälfte des Kabinetts sind Esel". Als das heulende und schnaubende Parlament ihn nötigen will, diese Behauptung zurückzuziehen, "dementiert" er mit den Worten: "Die Hälfte des Kabinetts sind keine Esel". 4 Zum Problem der "leeren Allsätze" s. u. 5 Daß man sich dagegen sträubt, diesen Satz als wahr anzuerkennen, läßt sich damit erklären, daß mit ihm kaum je relevante Information transportiert wird. Bei komplexen Prädikaten sträubt man sich weniger: Der Satz "Alle, die immerhin den Anfangsbuchstaben richtig gera ten haben, bekommen einen Trostpreis" gilt auch (und gerade dann), wenn es keiner geschafft hat. 6 Wegen der Konvertibilität der Existenzsätze kommt dann auch Airgendeinem B zu: "Wenn A einem B zukommt, muß auch B einem A zukommen" (ibid.). Vgl. auch Top. 109a: "haben wir gezeigt, daß etwas allem zukommt, so haben wir auch gezeigt, daß es einigem zukommt."
