On the Philosophy of Language

Paperback
Language is a crucial way we understand the world. Discover the principles that guide it with ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF LANGUAGE. Inside you'll read simple explanations of major philosophy of language theories with an emphasis on meaning and learn how the limits of our language shape the limits of our perceptions. From an initial examination of the origins of the field in the work of Russell and Frege, Odell goes on to discuss speech act theory, ordinary language approaches, the Quinean indeterminacy theses, and evolutionary semantics.
