"An excellent introduction to contemporary philosophy of language. I recommend it highly for teachers and advanced students in philosophy, linguistics and cognitive science. The book covers all the memorable highlights of recent philosophy language." Australasian Journal of Philosophy "Language and Reality is intelligent, honest, stimulating, and highly readable. The authors do not 'talk down' to the reader, but at no point does the discussion become very technical or arcane." Teaching PhilosophyReseña del editor:
Completely revised and updated in its Second Edition, Language and Reality provides students, philosophers and cognitive scientists with a lucid and provocative introduction to the philosophy of language.In so doing, the authors address questions of central importance to the philosophy of language, such as: 'What is Language', 'How does it related to the mind?', 'How does it relate to the world?', and 'Should our view of language influence our view of the world?'. Unique in its approach, it brings together a range of topics and explains the relevance of these questions to broader issues in epistemology, metaphysics, and psychology. Its theoretical and naturalist perspectives encourage lively and engaging discussions.
