How can a sentence, a belief, or a picture represent something? This problem — the problem of intentionality — is of fundamental importance to analytic philosophy. We will discuss a special case: the problem of intentionality as it presents itself in language. Readings will include classic work by Frege, Russell, Strawson, Wittgenstein, Searle, Kripke, Putnam, and Evans. The prerequisite for this course is PHIL 345 or PHIL 383, and one course in formal logic. The logic course may have been taken in a computer science or math department.
