From Naming to Saying explores the classicquestion of the unity of the proposition, combining an historical approach with contemporary causal theories to offer a unique and novel solution.

  • Presents compelling and sophisticated answers to questions about how language represents the world.
  • Defends a novel approach to the classical question about the unity of the proposition.
  • Examines three key historical theories: Frege’s doctrine of concept and object, Russell’s analysis of the sentence, and Wittgenstein’s picture theory of meaning.
  • Combines an historical approach with discussion and defense of a contemporary causal theory of the unity of the proposition.
  • Establishes a view compatible with, though not dependent on, a causal theory of meaning.
