Putting Metaphysics First by Michael Devitt Putting Metaphysics First, Paperback (January 2010)

Michael Devitt presents a series of essays in which he argues for an uncompromisingly realist view of the external physical world. He goes on to reject moral noncognitivism and antirealist views of truth. He argues against the a priori, and urges that we should approach epistemology and semantics from a metaphysical perspective and not vice versa.

Ignorance of Language by Michael Devitt Ignorance of Language, Paperback (April 2008)

The Chomskian revolution in linguistics gave rise to a new orthodoxy about mind and language. Michael Devitt throws down a provocative challenge to that orthodoxy. What is linguistics about? What role should linguistic intuitions play in constructing grammars? What is innate about language? Michael Devitt offers refreshingly original answers.
