Product Overview

"Language, Names, and Information" is an important contribution to philosophy of language by one of its foremost scholars, challenging the pervasive view that the description theory of proper names is dead in the water, and defending a version of the description theory from a perspective on language that sees words as a wonderful source of information about the nature of the world we live in.Challenges current pervasive view that the description theory of reference for proper names has been refutedDiscusses several topics at the center of current debates, including representation and information, two-dimensionalism, possible worlds, and broad vs. narrow contentMaintains the conversational and somewhat informal tone of the original lectures upon which the book is based
