An Opinionated Introduction to the Theory of Reference

Kenneth A. Taylor

  • Surveys the opinions of an unusually broad range of philosophers of language over the past century and a half
  • Presents original ideas in the context of familiar debates and authors, which allows us to better understand the history of thinking about reference
  • Connects the views of familiar figures like Frege, Russell and Quine with those of current figures-not only philosophers but linguists, computer scientists and others
