Mind, Meaning, and Reality: Essays in Philosophy

D. H. Mellor

Abstract

The book collects fifteen previously uncollected philosophical works, including a new defence of ‘success semantics’ and an introduction arguing that philosophy needs no special ‘meta-philosophy’.

Part II is about what there is: the reality of dispositions; what makes beliefs and sentences true; why there is only one universe; and how social groups, and other things with parts, are related to the people and other things that are their parts ...

Keywords: philosophy, action, belief, meaning, dispositions, multiverse, reduction, mereology, time, Kant, tense, time traval
