In these chapters this book attempts to come to terms with the views that a theory of meaning for a language is best understood as a theory of truth for that language, that thought and language are best understood together via a theory of interpetation and that the mental is irreducible to the physical mental. In some cases these chapters elaborate and in some cases they criticize. But each is still on the cutting edge of work in philosophy of language and mind.
