This anthology of essays on the work of David Kaplan, a leading contemporary philosopher of language, sprang from a conference, "Themes from Kaplan," organized by the Center for the Study of Language and Information at Stanford University. The book contains sixteen papers by suchdistinguished contributors as Robert M. Adams, Roderick Chisholm, Nathan Salmon, and Scott Soames, and includes Kaplan's hitherto uncollected paper, "Demonstratives," which has for twenty years been one of the most influential pieces in the philosophy of language. These essays examine a broad rangeof themes related to Kaplan's work; some address his work directly, while others are independent discussions of issues provoked by Kaplan's thought.
Joseph Almog is at UCLA. John Perry is at Stanford.

Editorial Reviews

"Anyone interested in logic or language will find in [the contributed papers] much of value; they are on the whole far more substantial than festschrift papers usually are."--International Studies in Philosophy
