Cite this publication. Philosophy of mind has always occupied a central place in Western philosophy and all. the great philosophers, from Plato to Wittgenstein, made significant contributions to it. Indeed, Descartes, often described as the father of modern philosophy, is perhaps best. about the proper interpretation of Wittgenstein’s discussions.

Investigations may include inquiry into the nature of meaning, intentionality, reference, the constitution of sentences, concepts, learning, and thought. Gottlob Frege and Bertrand Russell were pivotal figures in analytic philosophy's "linguistic turn"

Each chapter focusses on one or two texts which have had a seminal influence on work in the subject, and uses these as a way of approaching both the central topics and the various traditions of dealing with them. Texts include classic writings by Frege, Russell, Kripke, Quine, Davidson, Austin, Grice and Wittgenstein. Theoretical jargon is kept to a minimum and is fully explained whenever it is introduced.

Continental Philosophy: A Critical Approach is a lucid and wide-ranging introduction to the key figures and philosophical movements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Schroeder is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Like no other book before it, it succeeds not only in helping us to understand the past, but also defines an array of future tasks that those working in this field will have to address. Frithjof Bergmann, University of Michigan.

This book surveys the competing theories of linguistic meaning and compares their various advantages and liabilities.

What do ‘meaning’ and ‘truth’ mean? And how are they situated in the concrete practices of linguistic communication? What is the relationship between words and the world? How―with words―can people do such varied things as marry, inaugurate a president, and declare a country’s independence? How is language able to express knowledge, belief, and other mental states? What are metaphors and how do they work? Is a mathematically rigorous account of language possible? Does language make women invisible and encode a male worldview?

These are the kind of questions that have been addressed by philosophers of language since ancient times. Interest in the subject stretches back to the beginnings of western philosophy (for instance, in his Academy, Plato considered the question whether the names of things were deemed by convention or by nature). Interest in the philosophy of language has also been enduring―and has blossomed anew in the past century.

This new title in the Routledge series, Critical Concepts in Philosophy, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject’s vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by A. P. Martinich, one of the subdiscipline’s leading scholars, this collection brings together in four volumes the canonical and the very best cutting-edge scholarship in the field to provide a synoptic view of all the key issues, figures, concepts, and current debates.

With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editor, which place the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Philosophy of Language is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by philosophers and linguists―as well as psychologists and cognitive scientists working on language―as a vital research resource.

Edited by Al Martinich `The Philosophy of Language' is an anthology of classic essays in the modern analytic philosophy of language tradition. The following comments pertain to the 5th edition of the text published in 2008.

This is the best collection of its type that I have come across. While the selection of essays to include in these types of anthologies is a difficult task, Martinich is successful in capturing the traditions seminal works and key thinkers, e.g. Frege, Russell, Church, Tarski, Quine, Strawson, Kripke, Searle etc. Potential purchasers are advised to review the available on-line table of contents prior to purchase - most of these essays have been published in various formats and collections.

An earlier reviewer had remarked that these essays are accessible. And, while I agree that they are not inaccessible, approaching them without out a background in analytic philosophy or a skilled guide may be a daunting and frustrating task. While at its core the philosophy of language is concerned with the basic question of how language connects to the world, when notions such as meaning, reference and truth are examined the subject rapidly becomes complex and heavily nuanced. With respect to reading aids, two potential guides that come to mind are, Lycan's `Philosophy of Language' (Routledge Contemporary Introductions series) and Searle's UC Berkley lectures available through itunes.

Overall an outstanding anthology - highly recommended for students of the philosophy of language - a handy collection of important essays.

This made for an excellent collection of reference material for writing an upper-level introductory paper on semantics and language topics.

Anyone serious about meaning in language should read these articles. They provide a baseline on which all other work builds. Whether you are interdisciplinary or only care about linguistics, philosophy, artificial intelligence or cognition, this book is one must-read paper after another.
I used it for both my graduate semantics and undergraduate philosophy of language classes at Carnegie Mellon. You can read these papers on your own -- they're actually very accessible for papers on philosophy and do not require any prior logical background (though an intro to logic would surely help). Taken together, this book is the perfect basis for a quarter, semester or whole year of philosophy of language.
The book's organized into sections on Truth and Meaning (Quine's classic paper on empiricism, Church on intensionality, Davidson and Strawson on truth and Tarski on semantics), Speech Acts (Austin on Performatives, Searle on Speech Acts, Grice on cooperation), Reference and Descriptions (Frege on sense and reference, Russell on denoting and descriptions with Strawson's reply on referring), Names and Demonstratives (Kripke on Naming and necessity and Putnam on meaning and reference), Propositional attitudes (Quine and Kaplan on quantifiers, Davidson and Kripke on propositional content, and Barwise and Perry on situation semantics), Metaphor (Davidson's classic paper, though I believe the second edition contained Searle's excllent paper on metaphor), Interpretation (Quine on meaning and Searle on indeterminancy), and the Nature of Language with what's left (Wittgenstein and Kripke on privacy, and Chomsky on semantic innateness).
