Summary
"New Esstys on Singular Thought presents ten new essays on an issue central to philosophy of mind, language, and perception: the nature of our thought about the external world." "Is our thought about objects in the world always descriptive, mediated by our conceptions of those objects? Or is some of our thought somehow more direct, singular, associated more intimately with our perceptual, linguistic, and socially mediated relations to them? Leading experts in the field contributing to this volume make the case for the singularity of thought, and debate a broad spectrum of issues it raises, including the structure of singular thought, the role of acquaintance in perception and communication based reference, the semantics of fictional and mythical terms, and the merits of epistemic, cognitive, and linguistic conditions on singular thought. Their essays explore new diretions for future research and will be an important resource for anyone working at the interface of semantics and mental representation"--Jacket
