Omtale From Naming to Saying
"From Naming to Saying" explores the classic question of the unity of the proposition, combining an historical approach with contemporary causal theories to offer a unique and novel solution. This work: presents compelling and sophisticated answers to questions about how language represents the world; defends a novel approach to the classical question about the unity of the proposition; examines three key historical theories: Frege's doctrine of concept and object, Russell's analysis of the sentence, and Wittgenstein's picture theory of meaning; combines an historical approach with discussion and defense of a contemporary causal theory of the unity of the proposition; and, establishes a view compatible with, though not dependent on, a causal theory of meaning.
