I’m going to be teaching philosophy of language next term. It’s the first time–if you can believe that–we’re offering a course with that title. We used to have a course called “Analytical Philosophy”, which served that purpose, but it was also a history of analytic philosophy course. Anyway. I’d like to give my students a textbook, and was wondering if something new and good has shown up at the APA book exhibits in the last two years. Otherwise I’d probably use Ken Taylor’s Meaning and Truth.
