Foundations of Illocutionary Logic

Author: John R. Searle
Publisher: CUP Archive
ISBN: 0521263247

Genre: Philosophy

This is a formal and systematic study of the logical foundations of speech act theory. The study of speech acts has been a flourishing branch of the philosophy of language and linguistics over the last two decades, and John Searle has of course himself made some of the most notable contributions to that study in the sequence of books Speech Acts (1969), Expression and Meaning (1979) and Intentionality (1983). In collaboration with Daniel Vanderveken he now presents the first formalised logic of a general theory of speech acts, dealing with such things as the nature of an illocutionary force, the logical form of its components, and the conditions of success of elementary illocutionary acts. The central chapters present a systematic exposition of the axioms and general laws of illocutionary logic.

Meaning and Speech Acts Volume 1 Principles of Language Use

Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521374154
Release Date: 1990-09-28
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The primary units of meaning in the use and comprehension of language are speech acts of the type called illocutionary acts. In Foundations of Illocutionary Logic John Searle and Daniel Vanderveken presented the first formalised logic of a general theory of speech acts. In Meaning and Speech Acts Daniel Vanderveken further develops the logic of speech acts and the logic of propositions to construct a general semantic theory of natural languages. Volume I, Principles of Language Use explains the general principles that connect meaning, reason, thought and speech acts in the semantic structure of language. It presupposes no detailed knowledge of logical formalism, and will be accessible to a large readership of students and scholars from philosophy, lingustics, cognitive psychology and computer science. Volume II, Formal Semantics of Success and Satisfaction uses the resources of philosophical and mathematical logics to develop a formalisation of the laws of the semantic theory advanced in Volume I. It will be of interest to theoretical linguists and those involved in mathematical logic and artificial intelligence.

Vermutung des K nstlerischen

Release Date: 2011
Genre: Law

English summary: Banning a novel is a serious infringement on artistic freedom. Is however the fictional nature of the book, drawn upon by the Federal Constitutional Court in the Esra decision, appropriate as a basis for a decision on conflicts between artistic freedom and the protection of privacy? Mareike Riedel examines the suitability of this criterion from the perspective of law and literature. German description: Das Verbot des Romanes aEsra von Maxim Biller sorgte fur kontroverse Auseinandersetzungen und beschaftigte schliesslich das Bundesverfassungsgericht: Um der schwierigen Abwagung zwischen Kunstfreiheit und allgemeinem Personlichkeitsrecht Herr zu werden, griff das Gericht auf den originar literaturwissenschaftlichen Begriff der Fiktionalitat zuruck. Doch ist der Rekurs auf das Fiktionale geeignet, um rechtliche Konflikte zwischen Personlichkeitsschutz und Kunstfreiheit aufzulosen? Das Kriterium erweist sich bei naherer Betrachtung als vage und schwer konturierbar. Mareike Riedel untersucht deshalb im vorliegenden Buch die Frage nach der Fiktionalitat eines literarischen Textes rechts- und literaturwissenschaftlich. Dabei tragt sie der Autonomie des Rezeptionsverhaltens Rechnung und nimmt so das Bundesverfassungsgericht mit seiner Forderung nach einer kunstspezifischen Betrachtung beim Wort.

Verbal Art

Author: Anders Pettersson
Publisher: McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP
ISBN: 0773520694
Release Date: 2001-03-01
Genre: Literary Criticism

Anders Pettersson presents a comprehensive account of the foundations of literature, grounded in an original analysis of the interactions between author and reader. Drawing on post-Gricean pragmatics and Nicholas Wolterstorff's notion of presentationality, Pettersson develops the idea of the verbal text and conveys an integrated and nuanced understanding of literary experience, its conditions, and the values it affords. In the second part of Verbal Art he systematically examines the cognitive, affective, and formal aspects of the literary work and explores their interrelations.Pettersson demonstrates the implications and applications of the theory through a series of detailed studies of literary works, taking care to show that his theory is compatible with a broad variety of perspectives. Combining an intimate knowledge of modern literary theory and the aesthetics of literature with innovative applications of linguistics and cognitive psychology to the literary work, he provides a thorough treatment of fundamental problems in the area, including the concept of a text or work, the concept of form, and the distinctiveness of the literary use of language.

Foundations of Speech Act Theory

Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Foundations of Speech Act Theory investigates the importance of speech act theory to the problem of meaning in linguistics and philosophy. The papers in this volume, written by respected philosophers and linguists, significantly advance standards of debate in this area. Beginning with a detailed introduction to the individual contributors, this collection demonstrates the relevance of speech acts to semantic theory. It includes essays unified by the assumption that current pragmatic theories are not well equipped to analyse speech acts satisfactorily, and concludes with five studies which assess the relevance of speech act theory to the understanding of philosophical problems outside the area of philosophy of language.

AESTHETICIZING PRAGMATICS The Gamut of Pragmatics Pragmatics emerged among the sciences of language at the end of the 1960's in reaction to certain totalizing models in linguistics: structuralism (primarily in Europe) and generative grammar (initially in the United States). Certain disciples of Chomsky became dissatisfied with autono mous syntax and later with generative semantics: they decided to break away from their mentor. Whereas Chomsky continued to talk a lot about very little, they defied him by speaking very suggestively about an exces sively broad range of phenomena. Pragmatics -which Bar-Hillel consid ered as a 'wastebasket discipline' in the fifties - nevertheless gained respectability. The history of pragmatics spans, of course, much more than three decades. The Stoic conception of language, in the shadow of the great Greek tradition and therefore intensely subversive, had in fact a pragmatic aim. The term pragmatisch appears in Kant: it expresses a relation with a human goal, this goal being only determinable within a community. This characterization naturally inspires the pragmaticism of l the Neo-Kantian Charles Sanders Peirce . It is this Kant-Peirce lineage that led to Morris and Carnap's rather bland conceptions of pragmatics, after the heavy losses incurred by positivism and behaviorism. In any case, despite the constant presence of a pragmatic approach in the history of thought, this reassessment of pragmatics (against the triumphs proclaimed by structuralism and generativism) was experienced as a Significant break through. A whole range of pragmatics came to the attention of linguists.
