Summary
Saul A. Kripke's Reference and Existence, the John Locke Lectures for 1973, can be read as a sequel to his classic Naming and Necessity. It confronts important issues left open in that work- among them, the semantics of proper names and natural kind terms as they occur in fiction and in myth; negative existential statements; the ontology of fiction and myth (whether it is true that fictional characters like Hamlet, or mythical kinds like bandersnatches, might have existed). In treating these questions, he makes a number of methodological observations that go beyond the framework of his earlier book- including the striking claim that fiction cannot provide a test for theories of reference and naming. In addition, these lectures provide a glimpse into the transition to the pragmatics of singular reference that dominated his influential paper, "Speaker's Reference and Semantic Reference"--A paper that helped reorient linguistics and philosophical semantics. Some of the themes have been worked out in later writings by other philosophers- many influenced by typescripts of the lectures in circulation- but none have approached the careful, systematic treatment provded here. The virtuosity of Naming and Necessity- the colloquial ease of the tone, the dazzling, on-the-spot formulations, the logical structure of the overall view gradually emerging over the course of the lectures- is on display here as well. -- Book Jacket
