This course focuses on philosophical questions concerning linguistic meaning, the use of language, and the relationship between language and reality. It explores different theories of meaning (that is, theories about in virtue of what certain physical marks and noises have distinctive meanings). Alongside this, the course examines philosophical questions concerning truth, names, definite descriptions, metaphor and pragmatics. These themes encompass the work of some of the most important analytic philosophers.
