Divided into four parts - ‘Normative Pragmatics’; ‘The Challenge of Inferentialism’; ‘Inferentialist Semantics’; and ‘Brandom’s Replies’, Reading Brandom covers the following key aspects of Brandom’s work:
inferentialism vs. representationalism
normativity in philosophy of language and mind
pragmatics and the centrality of asserting
language entries and exits
meaning and truth
semantic deflationism and logical locutions.
Essential reading for students and scholars of philosophy of language and mind, Reading Brandom is also an excellent companion volume to Reading McDowell: On Mind and World, also published by Routledge.
