Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Imagine that you think you see your car in the lot at Dodger Stadium, but your key won't work. You think to yourself, "I owe $500 on this car." Then you see a stuffed Panda in the backseat and decide that it's a different car. When you thought about "this car," were you thinking of the car you couldn't unlock or the car that you owned? Camp says neither. You were thinking about something like both but you did not succeed in referring to either. Camp (philosophy of science, Univ. of Pittsburgh) has not just produced a brain twister. His problem can be found in Descartes and Locke, who worried that we seem not to perceive actual things but to confront only ideas of them. If we can't refer without unique objects of reference, our claims to truth may be in trouble. There are alternatives to his theory of reference, but Camp's book mainly for academics but something that can be enjoyed by all puzzle lovers will provoke thought. Leslie Armour, Univ. of Ottawa

Camp says neither. You were thinking about something like both but you did not succeed in referring to either. Camp...has not just produced a brain twister. His problem can be found in Descartes and Locke, who worried that we seem not to perceive actual things but to confront only ideas of them. If we can't refer without unique objects of reference, our claims to truth may be in trouble. There are alternatives to his theory of reference, but Camp's book...will provoke thought.
