9780198236214: The Seas of Language

Michael Dummett is a leading contemporary philosopher whose work on the logic and metaphysics of language has had a lasting influence on how these subjects are conceived and discussed. This volume contains some of the most provocative and widely discussed essays published in the last fifteen years, together with a number of unpublished or inaccessible writings. Essays included are: "What is a Theory of Meaning?," "What do I Know When I Know a Language?," "What Does the Appeal to Use Do for the Theory of Meaning?," "Language and Truth," "Truth and Meaning," "Language and Communication," "The Source of the Concept of Truth," "Mood, Force, and Convention," "Frege and Husserl on Reference," "Realism," "Existence," "Does Quantification Involve Identity?," "Could there be Unicorns?," "Causal Loops," "Common Sense and Physics," "Testimony and Memory," "What is Mathematics About?," "Wittgenstein on Necessity: Some Reflections," and "Realism and Anti-Realism." Serving well as a companion to Dummett's other collections, the essays in this volume are not forbiddingly technical or specialized, and have relevance to many areas of analytic philosophy.

From the Back Cover:

Michael Dummett is one of the most important and influential of contemporary philosophers; this book covers his work on metaphysics and the philosophy of language, two branches of philosophy that are closely intertwined. It contains twenty essays that have not appeared in his previous collections Truth and Other Enigmas and Frege and Other Philosophers; of these essays, three are previously unpublished, one appears here in English for the first time, and others have been difficult of access until now.

About the Author:

Michael Dummett was, until his retirement in 1992, Wykeham Professor of Logic at Oxford and a Fellow of New College. He has held visiting professorships at Stanford, Harvard, Minnesota, Princeton, Rockefeller, and Munster universities. He is an Honorary Fellow of the University of Nijmegen, an Honorary Docteur es Lettres at the University of Caen, and an Honorary Foreign Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. A previous collection of his essays was published as Frege and Other Philosophers by OUP in 1991 and sold over 1200 copies.
