A distinguished international group of philosophers contribute new essays on central issues in philosophy of language and logic, in honour of Michael Dummett, one of the most influential philosophers of the late twentieth century. The essays are focused on areas particularly associated withProfessor Dummett. Five are contributions to the philosophy of language, addressing in particular the nature of truth and meaning and the relation between language and thought. Two contributors discuss time, in particular the reality of the past. The last four essays focus on Frege and thephilosophy of mathematics. The volume represents some of the best work in contemporary analytical philosophy.
Richard G. Heck is at Harvard University.
