Edited by Daniel (University of Oxford) Altshuler


  • Information


Linguistics and philosophy, while being two closely-related fields, are often approached with very different methodologies and frameworks.

Bringing together a team of interdisciplinary scholars, this pioneering book provides examples of how conversations between the two disciplines can lead to exciting developments in both fields, from both a historical and a current perspective.

It identifies a number of key phenomena at the cutting edge of research within both fields, such as reporting and ascribing, describing and referring, narrating and structuring, locating in time and space, typologizing and ontologizing, determining and questioning, arguing and rejecting, and implying and (pre-)supposing.

Each chapter takes on a phenomena and explores it through a set of questions which are posed and answered at the outset of each chapter.

An accessible and engaging resource, it is essential reading for researchers and students in both disciplines, and will empower exciting and illuminating conversations for years to come.
