Language, Thought, and Other Biological Categories: New Foundations for Realism
Free Shipping Included! Language, Thought, and Other Biological Categories: New Foundations for Realism by The MIT Press at Translate This Website. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. Beginning with a general theory of function applied to body organs, behaviors, customs, and both inner and outer representations, Ruth Millikan
Beginning with a general theory of function applied to body organs, behaviors, customs, and both inner and outer representations, Ruth Millikan argues that the intentionality of language can be described without reference to speaker intentions and that an understanding of the intentionality of thought can and should be divorced from the problem of understanding consciousness. The results support a realist theory of truth and of universals, and open the way for a nonfoundationalist and nonholistic approach to epistemology.
