Current Controversies in Philosophy of Mind

Current Controversies in Philosophy of Mind by Uriah Kriegel
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0415530865 , 0415530873 | 264 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB

Philosophy of mind is one of the most dynamic fields in philosophy, and one that invites debate around several key questions. There currently exist annotated tomes of primary sources, and a handful of single-authored introductions to the field, but there is no book that captures philosophy of mind’s recent dynamic exchanges for a student audience.

The central aim of this study is to elucidate the nature of the semantics / pragmatics distinction in both synchrony and diachrony.

The Erotic Bird: Phenomenology in Literature

The Erotic Bird: Phenomenology in Literature by Maurice Natanson
English | 1998 | ISBN: 0691012199 | 187 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

How does literature illuminate the way we live? Maurice Natanson, a prominent champion of phenomenology, draws upon this method's unique power to show how fiction can highlight aspects of experience that are normally left unexamined. By exploring the structure of the everyday world, Natanson reveals the "uncanny" that lies at the core of the ordinary. Phenomenology–which involves the questioning of that which we usually take for granted–is for Natanson the essence of philosophy.
Language Turned on Itself: The Semantics and Pragmatics of Metalinguistic Discourse

Language Turned on Itself: The Semantics and Pragmatics of Metalinguistic Discourse
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA | 2007-11-02 | 148 pages | ISBN: 0199231192 | 1.8 MB | PDF | Rapidshare&Megaupload

Language Turned on Itself examines what happens when language becomes self-reflexive; when language is used to talk about language. Those who think, talk, and write about language are habitual users of various metalinguistic devices, but reliance on these devices begins early: kids are told, 'That's called a "rabbit"'. It's not implausible that a primitive capacity for the meta-linguistic kicks in at the beginning stages of language acquisition. But no matter when or how frequently these devices are invoked, one thing is clear: they present theorists of language with a complex data pattern. Herman Cappelen and Ernest Lepore show that the study of these devices and patterns not only represents an interesting and neglected project in the philosophy of language, but also carries important consequences for other parts of philosophy. Part I is devoted to presenting data about various aspects of our metalinguistic practices. In Part II, the authors examine and reject the four leading metalinguistic theories, and offer a new account of our use of quotation in a variety of different contexts. But the primary goal of this book is not to promote one theory over another. Rather, it is to present a deeply puzzling set of problems and explain their significance.
