Book Information

   

Title: Philosophy of Language
Edited By: Andrea Nye
Series Title: Philosophy: The Big Questions Series
Description:

This wide-ranging anthology brings together a variety of readings in the philosophy of language from the ancient Greeks to contemporary analytic, feminist, and multicultural perspectives. The emphasis is on issues that have a direct bearing on concerns about knowledge, reality, meaning, and understanding. A general introduction and introductions to each group of readings identify both the continuities and differences in the way "big" questions in philosophy of language have been addressed by philosophers of different historical periods, institutional affiliations, races, and genders.
