Omtale: Belief and Meaning
Belief and Meaning is a philosophical treatment of intentionality. It argues for a view of intentional content which is at once Fregean and Kantian in its conception of the relation between the mind and the external world. Without compromising the external constitution of the mind, it denies the importance and relevance of society and normativity to the intentional as well as the connection between intentionality and truth-conditions or reference in the offical sense. It offers instead an account of intentional content which is thoroughly local and contextual, and thereby also denies the philosophical importance of the theory of meaning as standardly conceived.
