Book Description

January 23, 1996 1557866708 978-1557866707 1
This is an anthology of landmark essays in the philosophy of language, philosophy of mind and cognitive science since 1950. It includes essays that aim to reflect the fact that philosophy and the science of mind and language have close historical and conceptual ties.

Each section begins with a brief and simple overview highlighting the issues and recommending other readings. The combination of this editorial material with a selection of classic essays makes this anthology a very flexible tool for introductory courses in cognitive science, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind and philosophy of psychology as well as courses devoted to contemporary analytic philosophy. However, the book also contains significant advanced and recent material, making it suitable for more advanced stud, including beginning graduate courses.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Most of the essays in Readings in Language and Mind have appeared previously in many other places. However, the special attention given to language in this context is indeed unique and distinguishes it from other anthologies." Pragmatics and Cognition

"Readings in Lnaguage and Mind collects classic writings in the philosophy of language and philosophy of mind of the last 40-50 years, including important relevant items from linguistics and cognitive science. It's an excellent collection to give students a basic foundation to understand the background of current philosophical inquiry." Professor Gilbert Harman, Princeton University

Format:Paperback
a good anthology for your study on language! As there could be many ways to climb the mountain, we need to know about linguistics, the philosophy of language and cognitive science to understand language as it is. You can taste all these academic fields in one book, because it is a very good collection of readings from these three kinds of fields. If you read readings in this book one by one as I did two years ago, you'll come to know the varying perspectives and the close relationship between theories of language and mind. But remember this book could just be a starting point for your study, even though it's a very thick book as is usual with anthologies. However don't be worried about ot too much. After you read this book thoroughly, you'll know,natually,much about what to read more and what to study further. Probably it'll be very helpful to you!
