Philosophy (especially philosophy of language and philosophy of mind), science (especially linguistics and cognitive science), and common sense all sometimes make reference to propositions--understood as the things we believe and say, and the things which are (primarily) true or false. There is, however, no widespread agreement about what sorts of things these entities are. In New Thinking about Propositions, Jeffrey C. King, Scott Soames, and Jeff Speaks argue that commitment to propositions is indispensable, and that traditional accounts of propositions are inadequate. They each then defend their own views of the nature of propositions.

Book Description Condition: New. Oxford University Press, 2014. 272p. Hardback. Here are three different philosophers, each defending a different view about the nature of propositions, criticizing each other's positions, and responding to these criticisms. The three philosophers are all extremely good, each of the three views is deeply interesting, the criticisms are sharp and perceptive, and the responses are clever and persuasive. Over the course of the book I was pulled in all three directions and back again multiple times . It made for exciting reading. Peter Hanks, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews (Publisher's information). Condition: New Print on Demand. Printed on Demand. Seller Inventory # 36193
