Reference and Existence

The John Locke Lectures

Saul Kripke

  • Confronts important issues left open in Naming and Necessity
  • Makes a number of methodological observations that go beyond the framework of his earlier book — including the striking claim that fiction cannot provide a test for theories of reference and naming
  • Provides a glimpse into the transition to the pragmatics of singular reference that dominated his influential paper, "Speaker's Reference and Semantic Reference" — a paper that helped reorient linguistic and philosophical semantics
