Philosophy | Philosophy and Language
P320 | 3395 | Toribio
This class deals with major issues in semantics and philosophy of
language. Its aim is to provide the student with the necessary
conceptual resources to analyze and criticize different theoretical
positions concerning the focal topics of truth, meaning and reference.
The course surveys treatments of these topics within the analytic
tradition, and involves a combination of selected readings from
leading philosophers in the field and class discussions. Students are
expected to critically engage the ideas and arguments presented, and
to develop and defend their own views on the core topics.
