Description

This book assesses the respective prospects of two competing methodological approaches to the study of meaning and communication, as well as truth and inference, each figuring prominently within the analytic tradition of philosophy of language. It defends the later Wittgenstein's "phenomenological" methodological approach, over the "logistical" methodological approach characteristic of the early analytic philosophers.show more
