Donald Davidson by Ernie Lepore

Book Description

Donald Davidson (1917-2003) was one of the most important philosophers of the late twentieth century. His work on language and the theory of meaning has been particularly influential.Two of the world's leading authorities on Davidson's philosophy, Ernest Lepore and Kirk Ludwig, provide a systematic exposition of his work in this field and of his contributions to philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and epistemology which spring from it. Their second aim is to assess Davidson's program critically, to mark its successes, but also to identify where its ccomplishments fall short of its ambitions, and, since it is an on-going research program, to assess its prospects for the future, and to contribute to the expansion of that program. Criticizing and extending Davidson's thought, as well as providing an introduction to it, Lepore and Ludwig address a broad academic audience. Their work will be of fundamental importance for those who are coming to Davidson's work for the first time; while some philosophical sophistication and training is presupposed, it is accessible both to advanced undergraduates and to graduate students. It will also be welcomed by professional philosophers, linguists, and anyone wishing to assess and understand Davidson's remarkable intellectual legacy.

Books By Author Ernie Lepore

Imagination and Convention by Ernie Lepore Imagination and Convention, Paperback (December 2016)

How do hearers manage to understand speakers? And how do speakers manage to shape hearers' understanding? Lepore and Stone show that standard views about the workings of semantics and pragmatics are unsatisfactory. They advance an alternative view which better captures what is going on in linguistic communication.

Liberating Content by Ernie Lepore Liberating Content, Hardback (December 2015)

This volume brings together two influential series of papers by Herman Cappelen and Ernie Lepore on language, communication, and contexts. These are the papers which introduced speech act pluralism and semantic minimalism, and they provide the foundation for one of the most powerful attacks on contextualism in contemporary philosophy.

Meaning, Mind, and Matter by Ernie Lepore Meaning, Mind, and Matter, Hardback (March 2011)

Ernie Lepore and Barry Loewer present a series of papers on three key ideas of contemporary philosophy: that a theory of meaning for a language is best understood as a theory of truth for that language; that thought and language are best understood together via a theory of interpretation; and that the mental is irreducible to the physical.

Donald Davidson by Ernie Lepore Donald Davidson, Hardback (March 2005)

Presenting a critical exposition of the philosophical system of Donald Davidson, this book aims to understand one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. Davidson's ideas had a deep and broad influence in the central areas of philosophy, but never set out explicitly the overarching scheme in which they all have their place.
