Editorial Reviews


"Rayo and Uzquiano have put together a fine collection of essays on this knotty issue.... The volume starts with a brief introduction by the editors, which nicely sets the scene. As one would expect from a bunch of logicians of this calibre, the essays are insightful, thought provoking, and often technically clever."--Graham Priest, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

More About the Author

Agustin Rayo is a native of Mexico City. In 1996 he moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to study philosophy at MIT. He is now back at MIT as a faculty member, after having spent some time at the University of St Andrews, and the University of California at San Diego.

Agustin's research lies in the intersection of the philosophy of language and the philosophy of logic and mathematics. He is especially interested in understanding the relationship between our language and the world it represents, on clarifying certain connections between logic and mathematics, and on investigating the limits of communicable thought.
