Grammar in Early Twentieth-century Philosophy by Richard Gaskin

Book Description

This book is a systematic and historical exploration of the philosophical significance of grammar. In the first half of the twentieth century, and in particular in the writings of Frege, Husserl, Russell, Carnap and Wittgenstein, there was sustained philosophical reflection on the nature of grammar, and on the relevance of grammar to metaphysics, logic and science.

Language, Truth, and Literature by Richard Gaskin Language, Truth, and Literature, Paperback (June 2016)

Richard Gaskin offers an original defence of literary humanism, according to which works of imaginative literature have an objective meaning which is fixed at the time of production and not subject to individual readers' responses. He shows that the appreciation of literature is a cognitive activity fully on a par with scientific investigation.

Horace and Housman by Richard Gaskin Horace and Housman, Hardback (December 2013)

The lyric poems of Horace and Housman are two enigmatic bodies of work that have much in common, and a close reading of each poet's writings can illuminate the other's. This is the first book to provide a detailed, critical comparison between these two poets, and also the first to make use of Housman's unpublished lectures on Horace.

Unity of the Proposition by Richard Gaskin Unity of the Proposition, Hardback (October 2008)

Richard Gaskin analyses what is distinctive about sentences and the propositions they express-what marks them off from mere aggregates of words and meanings respectively. Since he identifies the world with all the true and false propositions, his account has significant implications for our understanding of the nature of reality.
