Donald Davidson: Meaning, Truth, Language, and Reality


Donald Davidson (1917-2003) was one of the most important philosophers of the late twentieth century. His work on language and the theory of meaning has been particularly influential. Ernie Lepore and Kirk Ludwig, two of the world's leading authorities on Davidson's philosophy, provide a systematic exposition of his work in this field and of his contributions to the philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and epistemology which spring from it. In addition, they offer a critical assessment of Davidson's program, marking its successes but also identifying where its accomplishments fall short of its ambitions, and, since it is an on-going research program, assessing its prospects for the future, and contributing to the expansion of that program.
