First published in 1976, this book presents a view of language as a matter of systematic communicative behaviour. Professor Bennett discusses the problems involved in topics such as teleology, belief and intention, form and content, meaning, convention, and syntactic structure, whilst underlining the importance of behaviour in both human and non-human forms of communication. For the major points of reference in Bennett"s discussions, a select bibliography is included, which roots his thesis in a broader corpus of linguistic and philosophical study. This book will be of interest to the student and scholar as well as to the general enthusiast of the philosophy of language.
