Title: The Pragmatics Of Propositional Attitude Reports
Written By: Kasia M. Jaszczolt
URL: http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/series/crispi
Description:

This volume is a collection of nine papers dealing with the topic of reporting on beliefs and other attitudes, and in particular with the issue of the semantics-pragmatics boundary dispute which is the core topic of the current research in the field. Written by highly-regarded philosophers of language and linguists working on theoretical semantics and pragmatics, it brings together works in the mainstream tradition of logical form and the contextualism-anticontextualism debate and the research on the role of intentions, conventions, goals, plans and cultural stereotypes in attitude ascriptions. The editor's introductory chapter gives a valuable overview of the work, discussing the importance of all these aspects of propositional attitude research and stressing their compatibility and interdependence. Audience: Advanced students and researchers in linguistics, philosophy and cognitive science and in semantics, pragmatics, philosophy of language and mind, and social anthropology.
