Readings in the Philosophy of Language

£8.99

Product description

Throughout the history of ideas, various branches of philosophy have spun off into the natural sciences, including physics, biology, and perhaps most recently, cognitive psychology. A central theme of this collection is that the philosophy of language, at least a core portion of it, has matured to the point where it is now being spun off into linguistic theory. Each section of the book contains historical (20th-century) readings and, where available, recent attempts to apply the resources of contemporary linguistic theory to the problems under discussion.

Condition: This book has evidently been well-used as a textbook. Covers are shelfworn, corner bumped, creased and peeling, scuffed and scratched, slightly torn at head and tail of spine; foreedges are well-thumbed and somewhat marked. Interior hinge is split completely at the beginning of part IV, and the latter half of the book has notes and underlining. However all pages are clearly readable and the binding remains mostly intact.
