Philosophy of
Language
provides students with an accessible yet detailed introduction to the major
issues and thinkers in the subject. Ideal for use on undergraduate courses, but
also of value for postgraduate students, the structure and content of this
textbook closely reflect the way the philosophy of language is taught and
studied.

Thematically structured, the book introduces the work of leading thinkers who
have contributed to the discipline, including Frege, Russell, Strawson, Grice,
Quine, Davidson and Lewis. The author examines key distinctions in the
philosophy of language, including sense and reference, sense and force, descriptions
and names, semantics and pragmatics, extensional, intensional, and
hyperintensional contexts, and the problems which these distinctions involve.

Chris Daly's cogent and thorough analysis is supplemented by student-friendly
features, including chapter summaries, questions for discussion, guides to
further reading, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography.
