Introduction: Davidson's philosophical project

Ernie Lepore, Kirk Ludwig

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


The introduction provides an overview of Davidson's work in the theory of meaning in general, on truth-theoretic semantics in particular, its connections with radical interpretation, and in turn, the connection of radical interpretation with Davidson's conception of the mental. It reviews the main contributions of the volume, and takes up a number of more specific interpretive issues raised in the other chapters.
