Ryan Nefdt (Univ. of Cape Town), a Spring 2021 Visiting Fellow, has edited and contributed a chapter to a newly-published work on philosophy of language.
The Philosophy and Science of Language, part of the “Interdisciplinary Perspectives” series, is available now from Springer.
This volume brings together a diverse range of scholars to address important philosophical and interdisciplinary questions in the study of language. Linguistics throughout history has been a conduit to the study of the mind, brain, societal structure, literature and history itself. The epistemic and methodological transfer between the sciences and humanities in regards to linguistics has often been documented, but the underlying philosophical issues have not always been adequately addressed.
The volume also features new work by Center Resident Fellow Kate Stanton (Univ. of Pittsburgh, Philosophy.) See Springer’s website for more details and to order.
