Speaking of Events

James Higginbotham, Fabio Pianesi, and Achille C. Varzi

The view that an adequate semantics of natural language calls for some theory of events has been a focus of considerable debate among linguists and philosophers. This book offers a vivid and up-to-date indication of this debate, with contributions by leading experts. A comprehensive introductory essay is included.
