Situations and Attitudes

PDF EBook by Jon Barwise

EBook Description

In this book, Barwise and Perry tackle the subject of meaning, a subject that has long vexed linguists, language philosophers, and logicians. Situations and Attitudes PDF EBook Meaning does not exist solely within words and sentences but resides largely in the situation and the attitudes brought to it by those involved. The authors present a treatment of important innovations in the field of natural semantics, contending that the standard view of logic (as derived from Frege, Russell, and work in mathematics and logic) is inappropriate for many of the uses to which it has been put by scholars. In Situations and Attitudes, Barwise and Perry provide the basics of a realistic model- PDFtheoretic semantics of natural language, explain the main ideas of the theory, and contrast them with those of competing theories.
