Meaning and Speakers’ Meaning

  • Bernard Harrison
Part of the Modern Introductions to Philosophy book series


It is possible to hold that the concept of linguistic meaning is to be analysed in terms of communication and social interaction and yet to deny any fundamental role in the analysis to the concept of a semantic rule, or a rule of language. And it can seem a great relief, as it does also to Davidson, to be rid of the debased coinage which such phrases have often seemed over the past thirty years to have become.
