In this exciting new collection, a distinguished international group of philosophers contribute new essays on central issues in philosophy of language and logic, in honor of Michael Dummett, one of the most influential philosophers of the late twentieth century. The essays are focused on areas particularly associated with Professor Dummett. Five are contributions to the philosophy of language, addressing in particular the nature of truth and meaning and the relation between language and thought. Two contributors discuss time, in particular the reality of the past. The last four essays focus on Frege and the philosophy of mathematics. The volume represents some of the best work in contemporary analytical philosophy.
Authoritative and very well researched, this book is indispensable for anyone with an interest in international law, specifically as it relates to Palestinian refugees....Takkenberg's book is an extremely important addition to the literature on international law and the Palestine conflict. It stands out as an innovative text on a very complex issue that has long stood at the center of much controversy but hitherto has not been the subject of intense legal inquiry. * Journal of Palestine Studies *
