About this product
- DescriptionTo clarify and facilitate our inquiries we need a theory of truth predication that applies both to sentences that we ourselves are using and to sentences used by other speakers and at other times. Gary Ebbs presents a new conception of words and shows how to use it to define a truth predicate that directly applies to all these kinds of sentences.
- Author BiographyGary Ebbs is Professor of Philosophy at Indiana University, Bloomington, and has previously held faculty positions at University of Illinois, Urbana, University of Pennsylvania, and Harvard University. He is the author of Rule-Following and Realism (Harvard Press, 1997), and has published a number of articles on such topics as sameness of reference between speakers and across time, learning from others by trusting what they say, the compatibility of anti-individualism with self-knowledge, Hilary Putnam's views of truth and reference, and W. V. Quine's and Rudolf Carnap's debate about analyticity and truth by convention.
