Editorial Reviews

"Original, provocative, and illuminating....Deserves to be widely read. Blackburn's mastery of the issues, and of the extensive literature, is very impressive, his philosophical judgment is good, and his treatment of the issues is consistently intelligent, sensitive, fair-minded, and insightful."--Nous "A successful bridge between the introductory or survey books and the technical volumes....This is an excellent book for those who wish a clearly written but thorough view of the philosophy of language. Blackburn has the ability to bring forth issues clearly and yet to do justice to the complexity of these topics. This is not just a survey book but a volume that will itself make a positive addition to the philosophical topics it deals with."--Choice
