A Companion to the Philosophy of Language

This outstanding student reference series offers a comprehensive and authoritative survey of philosophy as a whole. Written by today's leading philosophers, each volume provides lucid and engaging coverage of the key figures, terms, topics, and problems of the field. Taken together, they provide the ideal basis for course use, representing a vital work of reference for students and specialists alike.

This substantial volume comprises twenty-five extended essays, each providing both a survey and analysis of key issues, figures and concepts as well as making new and original contributions to ongoing debate. Consisting of three sections on Meaning and Theories of Meaning; Language, Truth and Reality; and Reference, Identity and Necessity, and including an extensive glossary of technical and semi-technical terms, this Companion guides readers through the central topics in the philosophy of language.
