Locke's Philosophy of Language by Walter R. Ott
Book DescriptionThis book examines John Locke's claims about the nature and workings of language. Walter Ott proposes an interpretation of Locke's thesis in which words signify ideas in the mind of the speaker, and argues that rather than employing such notions as sense or reference, Locke relies on an ancient tradition that understands signification as reliable indication. He then uses this interpretation to explain crucial areas of Locke's metaphysics and epistemology, including essence, abstraction, knowledge and mental representation. His discussion challenges many of the orthodox readings of Locke, and will be of interest to historians of philosophy and philosophers of language alike.

Books By Author Walter R. Ott
Descartes, Malebranche, and the Crisis of Perception, Hardback (April 2017)
Seventeenth-century French philosophers grappled with a lasting problem: how do we use qualities such as color, feel, and sound to locate objects in the world, even though these qualities are not real? Walter Ott explores the debate about perceptual experience, covering Descartes and Malebranche alongside their less known contemporaries.
Causation and Laws of Nature in Early Modern Philosophy, Paperback (December 2012)
Causation and Laws of Nature in Early Modern Philosophy is a study of one of the most important debates in 17th- and 18th-century philosophy: the nature of causation. Ott offers controversial readings of such canonical figures as Descartes, Locke, and Hume, and explores related topics such as intentionality, necessity, and relations.
