Author: Gary Ebbs
Publisher: Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2009.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
To clarify and facilitate our inquiries we need a theory of truth predication that applies both to sentences that we are using ourselves and to sentences used by others. Ebbs presents a new conception of words and shows how to use it to define a truth predicate that directly applies to all these kinds of sentences.
