    Phil 234: Philosophy of Language
    image
    In this seminar we will closely read Gareth Evans' The Varieties Of Reference. This is (in my opinion) one of top five philosophy books of the 20th Century, covering an impressive range of topics and issues, but doing so in a way that yields a coherent system that is bursting at the seams with originality and philosophical skill. Anyone interested in philosophy of mind or philosophy would be irresponsible not to be familiar with this book. And for those with interests in other areas, there are many ideas and resources developed that can find application in any area of philosophy. But more important than these important benefits, it is a text that -- like a handful of other great books -- will make you a better philosopher once you've worked through it, regardless of your area of interest.

The second third moves to more contemporary views, including Fodor's language of thought, Dennett's intentional stance, and Churchland's eliminative materialism. The final third of the course explores the issue of group minds, including an exploration of social insects, and topics in corporate responsibility. Course Syllabus for Phil 136, Winter 2015
