This chapter begins by providing a brief summary of the topics discussed on the previous chapters. It then mentions a few remaining open issues about the matter and offers several directions on how the work presented here could be developed. Two specific issues are illustrated. The first issue is that the procedural model of senses presented in the second part of the book may have some independent interest and could be developed but it needs to be applied more broadly in order to justify the claim to its plausibility. The second issue is the importance of comprehending the tension between the treatments of defined expressions offered in the two parts of this book.

Keywords: procedural model of senses; defined expressions; open issues
