About the Authors
  • This is a book about Aristotle's philosophy of language, interpreted in a framework that provides a comprehensive interpretation of Aristotle's metaphysics, philosophy of mind, epistemology and science. The aims of the book are to explicate the description of meaning contained in De Interpretatione and to show the relevance of that theory of meaning to much of the rest of Arisotle's philosophy. In the process Deborah Modrak reveals how that theory of meaning has been much maligned.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Modrak has provided an original, enlightening, and thought provoking synthesis which will be indispensible for future students of Aristotle's philosophy of language." Fred Miller, Bowling Green State University, Review of Metaphysics

    "Thorough, far reaching, and incisive..." Ancient Philosophy

    "Modrak's discussion is excellent and absolutely necessary for anyone who would wish to join the discussion of Aristotle's theory of language in the light of recent philosophical issues."
