(p.319) Conclusion
Truly Understood

Christopher Peacocke (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter presents a synthesis of discussions in the preceding chapters. Among these are that fundamental reference rules for concepts can provide a substantive account of understanding. They can support a realistic treatment of truth and reference, and can do so in a way that is superior to justificationist, pragmatist, and pure conceptual-role theories of content. Current issues in philosophy and its adjacent cognitive sciences that require a substantive theory of sense for its resolution are presented.

Keywords:   reference, understanding, truth, philosophy, cognitive science
