LOT Meets Frege's Problem (Among Others)

Show Summary Details

Preview

There are two closely related issues that a theory of intentional mental states and processes might reasonably be expected to address: Frege's problem and the problem of publicity. This chapter shows that that a LOT version of representational theory of mind (RTM) has the resources to cope with both of them. It presents a survey of the relevant geography as viewed from a LOT/RTM perspective.

Keywords: language of thought; representational theory of mind; mental states; Frege's problem; problem of publicity
