Making It Explicit: Reasoning, Representing & Discursive Commitment: Reasoning, Representing and Discursive Commitment
This text examines the nature of language from the perspective of inference rather than representation. It proposes a theory that renders linguistic 'meaning' in terms of 'use', explaining how semantic content can be conferred on expressions and attitudes that are part of social practice.
