Editorial Reviews


"Offers a refreshing new line of approach from the point of view of a distinguished philosopher of language....Katz's book is bold and ambitious, not only in offering a new account of the cogito, but also in presenting his intensionalist semantics and taking on powerful contrary approaches by Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein, and Quine in the process....I hope that its provocative insights...prove an impetus to more scholarship on this high level of sustained seriousness."--Journal of Philosophy

"This book would serve well for a seminar on Descartes from an analytic or linguistic point of view. In addition, the thinkers considered by Katz: Locke, Kant, Wittgenstein, Frege, Carnap, and Quine, would definitely contribute to the success of such a course."--Teaching Philosophy

"Full of interesting and challenging ideas, presented in a most readable and orderly style and argued for adroitly and fairly."--History and Philosophy of Logic

"A fine book....Level-headed, interesting and clear."--Canadian Journal of Philosophy

"Challenging, and beautifully written. It makes us rethink the Cogito from yet another point of view, and in the process leads us through an updated version, and powerful defence, of the author's semantic theory."--Philosophy and Phenomenological Research
