Roads to Reference

An Essay on Reference Fixing in Natural Language

Mario Gomez-Torrente

  • A new unified perspective is reached concerning the strongest and most fundamental reasons for anti-descriptivism about names, demonstratives, and ordinary natural kind terms
  • Defends a series of novel realist and objectivist views about the reference of ordinary natural kind terms, numerals, and adjectives for sensible qualities
  • Establishes important new connections across the field of expressions of traditional interest in the theory of reference
