Tyler Burge has produced groundbreaking work on the semantics of
proper names and indexicals, de re belief, formal truth theories,
semantic and epistemic paradoxes, the philosophy of Gottlob Frege, and
other areas of the philosophy of language and of mind. But he is best
known for his arguments for anti-individualism, or externalism about
mental content. Burge's aim in pursuing anti-individualism is nothing
less than the solution to some of the most trenchant metaphysical and
epistemological problems, including the nature of objectivity and
norms, the force of skeptical arguments, apriority, and the nature of
the self. Central to all of these is an account of intentional content

This book focuses mainly on Burge's work on anti-individualism. In it,
various philosophers either comment on Burge's work or relate it to
their own. An unusual feature is the generosity--both in volume and
content--of Burge's contribution to this philosophical
conversation. The section containing his responses comprises the most
sustained, detailed, and interconnected body of writing that he has
published in one place.
