Meaning and Modes of Thought

Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with a discussion of Vardhamāna's thesis, which claims that the property which delimits the extension of the term is itself a meaning relatum (vācya) of that term. It then discusses modes of thought, mode as Fregean senses, Gadādhara on the form of a meaning theory, and Raghunātha's austere theory.

Keywords: Vardhamā; meaning theory; modes of thought; Frege; Gadādhara; Raghunātha
