  • Doubtful Certaintiesby Jesús Padilla Gálvez; Margit Gaffal

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 125.00

    To what extent can we doubt certainties? How are certainties expressed in words? Which language games convey certainty?

  • Davidsons semantisches Programm und deflationäre Wahrheitskonzeptionenby Martin Fischer

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 133.00

    Wahrheitstheorien sind ein zentraler Bestandteil von Davidsons semantischem Programm zur Erklärung von Interpretation.
