From Naming to Saying by Martha I. Gibson

Book Description

"From Naming to Saying" explores the classic question of the unity of the proposition, combining an historical approach with contemporary causal theories to offer a unique and novel solution. It presents compelling and sophisticated answers to questions about how language represents the world. It defends a novel approach to the classical question about the unity of the proposition. It examines three key historical theories: Frege's doctrine of concept and object, Russell's analysis of the sentence, and Wittgenstein's picture theory of meaning. It combines an historical approach with discussion and defense of a contemporary causal theory of the unity of the proposition. It establishes a view compatible with, though not dependent on, a causal theory of meaning.
