On Sense and Direct Reference: Readings in the Philosophy of Language focuses on the debate between neo-Fregeans and
neo-Russellians in philosophy of language. With a foreword by Nathan
Salmon, the volume collects more than 40 of the most important papers
in philosophy of language in the last 40 years; including David
Kaplan's "Demonstratives" and "Afterthoughts", and a paper written by
Scott Soames especially for the volume. It is suitable for advanced
undergraduate and graduate courses.
