How should we analyse the meaning of proper names, indexicals, demonstratives and definite descriptions? What relation do such expressions stand to the objects they designate or to mental representations of those objects? George Powell casts new light on these and other questions by approaching them from within a cognitive framework.
GEORGE POWELL is a post-doctoral researcher at University College London, UK. He has taught at a number of British universities, and has published papers on pragmatics, semantics and the philosophy of language. He currently lives in Montreal.
