Book Description

This book brings together some of the research presented at the 4th Weber Graduate Philosophy Conference held at San Diego State University in October of 2014. The theme of the conference was Philosophy of Language, and included any research in progress or completed. Presenters and participants from all over the country and the world were invited to take part in the two-day event. The contributions to this volume include research on Wittgenstein’s Proposition, self-directed irony, and an analysis of metaphors, in addition to much more. As such, this collection of essays presents a glimpse of the diversity of research and questions being conducted in the field of the philosophy of language. The book will appeal to both experienced scholars and anyone starting research in the field.
