Course description

In this seminar we will study current topics in the philosophical debate over the nature of linguistic meaning. Among the discussions we will choose from: Information-theoretic theories of meaning (due to Dretske and his followers), theories of meaning that appeal to evolution (such as Millikan's) and representational theories of meaning. Our focus will be on current texts and writers.
