"The Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Language" is a collection of twenty new essays by internationally renowned scholars. Each contribution offers an authoritative survey of a central topic in philosophy of language, often accompanied by useful suggestions for further reading; the volume also has a large and insightful bibliography at the end. Included are chapters on analyticity, anaphora, conditionals, descriptions, formal semantics, indexicals and demonstratives, kind terms, metaphor, names, propositional attitude ascriptions, speech acts, truth, and vagueness. An introduction by the editors sets the stage for extended treatments of theories of meaning and reference, and an investigation of foundational issues. Suitable for upper-level undergraduate and graduate survey courses, "The Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Language" is an invaluable resource for students and professional philosophers alike.
