Summary: In this"book Simon Blackburn provides a route into the central problems of modern philosophy of language The text is designed not to give the student a superficial acquaintance with well-known writers and their results but to foster a genuine appreciation of the problems which have dominated the area, and of the place these problems have in a wider philosophical context Individual chapters on rule-following meaning and convention, realism, theories of truth, semantics, and reference, enable the reader to appreciate the real import of recent investigations, and to understand the perennial concern of philosophers with the language we use to describe and change our world
