The Aesthetic as the Science of Expression and of the Linguistic in General

Articulating Reasons : An Introduction to Inferentialism Articulating Reasons : An Introduction to Inferentialism by Robert B. Brandom

Robert B. Brandom is one of the most original philosophers of our day, whose book Making It Explicit covered and extended a vast range of topics in metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of language--the very core of analytic philosophy. This new work provides an approachable introduction to the complex system that Making It Explicit mapped out. A tour of the earlier book's large ideas and relevant details, Articulating Reasons offers an easy entry into two of the main themes of Brandom's work: the idea that the semantic content of a sentence is determined by the norms governing inferences to and from it, and the idea that the distinctive function of logical vocabulary is to let us make our tacit inferential commitments explicit. Brandom's work, making the move from representationalism to inferentialism, constitutes a near-Copernican shift in the philosophy of language--and the most important single development in the field in recent decades. Articulating Reasons puts this accomplishment within reach of nonphilosophers who want to understand the state of the foundations of semantics.

Aspects of a Theory of Singular Reference

Original Contribution RecipientBy William J. Greenberg, Associate Professor, Department of English, College of Humanities  University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras.  

In these papers, the simple form of the pure theory of identity is subordinated to a complex form whose background ontology is one of structured individuals. In the complex form, the usual axioms proceed from principles more basic; the difference between (true) "a=b" and "a=a" supervenes on features of a and b; and some identicals are modally discernible.  (UCLA Ph.D. Dissertation, 1982; published in the Garland Series Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics, 1985)

bulletA Theory of Complexes
bulletThe Paradox of Identity
bulletLet X = X But Not Necessarily

Blackwell Publishers Linguistics Resources

The goal of this list is to be useful not comprehensive. Several fairly comprehensive sites exist with certain strengths and weaknesses; you can find pointers to them here. The number of linguistics-related sites can be overwhelming, and some are far more useful, helpful, and current than others. Our hope is that this site can help steer your toward the information you are after more quickly. Sites which are not available in English, or are focused too specifically on areas of interest to a limited audience have not been listed here.
