(p.119) Chapter 4 The Colour of the Leaves

Stefano Predelli (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter confronts the popular contextualist challenge to the traditional view of meaning and truth. Focusing on Charles Travis’ ‘painted leaves’ examples, it suggests that the contextualist criticism is grounded on confusions between the content and structure of natural-language semantics on the one hand, and its applications on the other. The final section focuses on underarticulationist views, and on their relationship with traditional natural language semantics.

Keywords:   contextualism, meaning, truth, underarticulation
