Two-Dimensional Semantics by Manuel Garcia-Carpintero

Book Description

According to two-dimensional semantics, the meaning of an expression involves two different "dimensions": one dimension involves reference and truth-conditions of a familiar sort, while the other dimension involves the way that reference and truth-conditions depend on the external world (for example, reference and truth-conditions might be held to depend on which individuals and substances are present in the world, or on which linguistic conventions are in place). A number of different two-dimensional frameworks have been developed, and these have been applied to a number of fundamental problems in philosophy: the nature of communication, the relation between the necessary and the a priori, the role of context in assertion, Frege's distinction between sense and reference, the contents of thought, and the mind-body problem. Manuel Garcia-Carpintero and Josep Macia present a selection of new essays by an outstanding international team, shedding fresh light both on foundational issues regarding two-dimensional semantics and on its specific applications. The volume will be the starting-point for future work on this approach to issues in philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics.

Books By Author Manuel Garcia-Carpintero

About Oneself by Manuel Garcia-Carpintero About Oneself, Hardback (January 2016)

This volume addresses the nature of first-personal, or de se, thought. Many have held that first-person thought motivates a revision of traditional accounts of content and how it is accessed, but this raises puzzling questions about how we are able to communicate such thoughts. It is these questions that the volume seeks to answer.

Empty Representations by Manuel Garcia-Carpintero Empty Representations, Hardback (August 2014)

The contents of linguistic and mental representations may seem to be individuated by what they are about. But a problem arises with regard to representation of the non-existent - words and thoughts that are about things that don't exist. Fourteen new essays get to grips with this much-debated problem.

Continuum Companion to the Philosophy of Language by Manuel Garcia-Carpintero Continuum Companion to the Philosophy of Language, Hardback (January 2012)

A guide to contemporary philosophy of language. It covers the fundamental questions asked by the philosophy of language. It explores issues pertaining to the nature of language, form semantics, theories of meaning, reference, intensional contexts, context-dependence, pragmatics, the normativity of language, analyticity, a priority and modality.
