Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gareth Evans was a British philosopher. Gareth Evans studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at University College, Oxford. His philosophy tutor was Peter Strawson. He then became a senior scholar at Christ Church, Oxford and a Kennedy Scholar at Harvard University and University of California, Berkeley. He died in 1980 of lung cancer at the age of 34, "a serious loss for British philosophy" according to the Oxford Companion to Philosophy. His collected papers and a book, The Varieties of Reference, edited by John McDowell, were published posthumously. In his brief career Evans made substantial contributions to logic, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind. Aside from Strawson, Michael Dummett and John McDowell were important influences on his work. Evans was one of many in the UK who took up the project of developing formal semantics for natural languages, instigated by Donald Davidson in the 1960s and 1970sshow more
