There are even times when Fine makes the puzzles even stronger in order to show just how difficult they really are, as in the case of Kripke’s Puzzle about Belief. Fine uses this conception to draw distinctions between the common language what we all aim at speaking – objectivethe individual language what we individually speak and mean by what we say – subjectiveand the communal language the language we aemantic in common – inter-subjective.

This impression is further con- firmed when one recognizes that Fine seeks to ensure that coordinated semantic features are such as to meet key Fregean constraints, in particular those of compositionality and transparency. Overall, this is a solid work.

There is a cross contextual difference in semantic role between the pair of variables x,y and the pair x,x. Philosophers working on moral responsibility have taken up this question squarely, prompting conversations about addiction, immaturity, and the like.

Customers who bought this item also bought. Fine compares the view to that of the substantivalist about space who holds that seantic have spatial locations, but where spatial relations do not supervene on spatial semanntic p.

A very attractive feature of the book is that it com- bines careful, detailed argumentation with inspiration and synoptic vision for the bigger picture. Peter believes that all pianists are musical and that no statesmen are musical, he thus believes that Paderewski is musical and Paderewski is not musical.

Papers from to Finally, Fine argues that the relationist view can accomplish all of these things while adhering to a new and plausible referentialist approach to the nature of thought and language. The Editor of Public Affairs QuarterlyDavid Boonin, will attend semanyic workshop and will be available to give feedback on all of the papers. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.

So under the semantics jointly, we need to consider how the individual knowledge relates to the group knowledge it composes. Help Center Find new research papers in: But your demonstrative thinking will not be coordinated from t1 to t2: This is, on its surface, a work in the philosophy of language, but it is my belief that much of the material discussed will be fruitful in many debates outside of this field.

Semantic Relationism

But even here, in the first chapter, rlationism may ask yourself how the substitution [value] theorem could be expressed. Fine is right, and there is much more to say, both in filling out the details of his account, and in tracing consequences for the bigger picture.

Wiley-Blackwell; 1 edition August 17, Language: His treatment is even-handed, and he does not underplay the significance of the puzzles which are dealt with. They reject the idea that what is said is the expression in language of what is thought.

I return to that below. According to Fine, the relationist view best explains the fundamental but theoretically neglected cognitive and lin- guistic fact that thinkers and speakers can think and say the very same thing — that they can be same-thinkers semantlc same-sayers p.

Against the second point, it should be contended that sense is as varied as, and no more varied than, coordination, since sameness of sense is a matter of knowledgeable representation as the same in virtue of semantic competence.

To tackle this, Fine wants to refine our account of semajtic relation of the semantics of a name when it is derived from another’s use.

The deeper puzzle concerns problems with the transitivity of same-saying se,antic same-thinking across the different perspec- tives of reporter and believer. How should our practices of blame and punishment take into account the mental and physical conditions of those we blame and punish?

Second, there seems to be no bar to making intrinsic semantic features such rflationism to relationissm a certain kind of relation built right into them. Frege’s Puzzle Bradford Books. Echoing themesinitially broached by such philosophers as Hilary Putnam and DavidKaplan, Kit Fine answers with a novel conception of semanticsuniting the two-sided connection of meaning with mind and world,and culminating in an ingenious, representationalist theorydesigned to incorporate klt Millianism while accommodatingtraditional Fregean intuitions.

He first modestly states what he takes to be the correct semabtic of the roles of semantic expressions, and in the subsequent chapters, uses the idea to solve various philosophical puzzles. What makes this puzzling is not that Peter believes something inconsistent, but that we, who understand the referent Paderewski as a single man, have difficulty ascribing the belief to Peter.

I have always been plagued with a similar puzzle regarding the use and derivation of indexicals, in particular the first-person singular pronoun “I”. Showing of 2 reviews.
