  • Thinking Out Loudby Christopher Gauker

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 42.00

    Most contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and linguists think of language as basically a means by which speakers reveal their thoughts to others. Christopher Gauker calls this "the Lockean theory of language," since Locke was one of its early exponents, and he contends that it is fundamentally mistaken. The Lockean theory, he argues, cannot adequately... more...

  • The Semantics of Desireby Philip M. Weinstein

  • Ghosts of the Gothicby Judith Wilt

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 40.50

    In a fascinating study of what, during the last decade, rekindled an avid readership, Judith Wilt proposes a new theory of Gothic fiction that challenges its reputation as merely a formula to be outgrown or a stock of images for the creation of terror. Emphasizing instead its status as an enduring component of the imagination, she establishes the... more...
