Varieties of Tone : Frege, Dummett and the Shades of Meaning, Hardback Book

Varieties of Tone : Frege, Dummett and the Shades of Meaning Hardback

Description

In clear and lively prose that avoids jargon, the author carefully and systematically examines the many kinds of subtly nuanced words or word-pairs of everyday discourse such as 'and'-'but', 'before'-'ere', 'Chinese'-'Chink', and 'sweat'-'perspiration', that have proven resistant to truth-conditional explanations of meaning.
