Hornsby, Jennifer (2012) Knowledge of meaning and epistemic interdependence. In: Schantz, E.R. (ed.) Prospects for Meaning. Current Issues in Theoretical Philosophy 3. Berlin, Germany: De Gruyter, pp. 383-398. ISBN 9783110196238.Full text not available from this repository.
Book synopsis: Original papers by leading international authors address the most important problem in the philosophy of language, the question of how to assess the prospects of developing a tenable theory of meaning, given the influential sceptical attacks mounted against the concept of meaning by Willard Van Quine and Saul Kripke and their adherents in particular. Thus the texts attempt to answer the fundamental questions – of whether there are meanings, and, if there are, of what they are and of the form a serious philosophical theory of meaning should take.
