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.
