Philosophical and Linguistic Analyses of Reference Hardback
Edited by Piotr Stalmaszczyk
Part of the Studies in Philosophy of Language and Linguistics series
Papers in this collection provide philosophical and linguistic analyses of reference.
The topics discussed include different types of reference, problems of identity, indexicality, reference fixing and descriptions.
Other issues covered in individual chapters concern events and the event-argument hypothesis, predicate reference, definite descriptions, contextualism, types of quantifications, faultless disagreement, vagueness, reference in minimalism, and the reference system for coding spatial information in Hausa.
The contributions discuss the approaches proposed by Gottlob Frege, Donald Davidson, and Saul Kripke, and contribute to the debate on reference in contemporary philosophy of language and linguistics.
