Description - Introduction to Linguistic Philosophy by Ian E. Mackenzie

This text seeks to provide a foundation for understanding the meaning and nature of language, and the differing concepts of truth which surround it. The author explores the theories of lingistic analysts such as Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, Carnap and Quine. He also deals with issues such as truth, meaning and the nature of language, and examines linguistic phemomena such as descriptions, names, non-extensional contexts and quantification. He stresses the importance of observing how language is used rather than assuming that it conforms to a pre-existing social structure.
