Propositional Attitudes by Mark Richard

Book Description

This book makes a stimulating contribution to the philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. It begins with a spirited defence of the view that propositions are structured and that propositional structure is 'psychologically real'. The author then develops a subtle view of propositions and attitude ascription. The view is worked out in detail with attention to such topics as the semantics of conversations, iterated attitude ascriptions, and the role of propositions as bearers of truth. Along the way important issues in the philosophy of mind are addressed. Though intended primarily for professional philosophers and graduate students the book will also interest cognitive scientists and linguists.

Truth and Truth Bearers by Mark Richard Truth and Truth Bearers, Hardback (November 2015)

This book collects nine seminal essays by Mark Richard, alongside four new essays and an introduction. Each essay attempts to understand the idea of a proposition. Richard explores the truth value of objects of thought and assertion; defends a relativist view of those objects; and discusses relations between sentential and propositional structure.

Context and the Attitudes by Mark Richard Context and the Attitudes, Paperback (March 2015)

Thirteen seminal essays by Mark Richard develop a nuanced account of semantics and propositional attitudes. The collection addresses a range of topics in philosophical semantics and philosophy of mind, and is accompanied by a new Introduction which discusses attitudes realized by dispositions and other non-linguistic cognitive structures.

When Truth Gives Out by Mark Richard When Truth Gives Out, Paperback (May 2010)

In this accessible and provocative book Mark Richard argues that the performative and expressive can trump the semantic, making truth the wrong dimension for evaluating a sentence. He explains what it is for truth to be relative, rebuts objections to relativism, assesses objections to expressivism, and gives a novel account of matters of taste.

Eccentric Obstinate And Fabulous! by Mark Richard Eccentric Obstinate And Fabulous!, Paperback (November 2008)

A wonderful memoir that journeys from Lyngen, Norway, to Palos Verdes, California, details an impressive list of historical characters as the author recounts the highlights and hardships of her charmed life.
