'Hill's excellent Thought and World is a highly readable and important defence of a form of deflationism ... it deserves, and will no dout receive, careful study.' The Philosophical Quarterly
There is an important family of semantic notions that we apply to thoughts and to the conceptual constituents of thoughts--as when we say that the thought that the Universe is expanding is true. The author presents a theory of the content of such notions. That theory is largely deflationary in spirit; it represents a broad range of semantic n otions as being free from substantive metaphysical and empirical presuppositions. It also seeks to explain the intuition that there is a relation of mirroring or semantic correspondence linking thoughts to reality.
