Foundations of Illocutionary Logic

Author: John R. Searle
Publisher: CUP Archive
ISBN: 0521263247
Release Date: 1985-04-25
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

Author: Daniel Vanderveken
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

Author: Mareike Riedel
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 3161507193
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
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.

Logic Thought and Action

Author: Daniel Vanderveken
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781402031670
Release Date: 2006-03-30
Genre: Social Science

This second volume in the series Logic, Epistemology, and the Unity of Science brings a pragmatic perspective to the discussion of the unity of science. Contemporary philosophy and cognitive science increasingly acknowledge the systematic interrelation of language, thought and action. The principal function of language is to enable speakers to communicate their intentions to others, to respond flexibly in a social context and to act cooperatively in the world. This book will contribute to our understanding of this dynamic process by clearly presenting and discussing the most important hypotheses, issues and theories in philosophical and logical study of language, thought and action. Among the fundamental issues discussed are the rationality and freedom of agents, theoretical and practical reasoning, individual and collective attitudes and actions, the nature of cooperation and communication, the construction and conditions of adequacy of scientific theories, propositional contents and their truth conditions, illocutionary force, time, aspect and presupposition in meaning, speech acts within dialogue, the dialogical approach to logic and the structure of dialogues and other language games, as well as formal methods needed in logic or artificial intelligence to account for choice, paradoxes, uncertainty and imprecision. This volume contains major contributions by leading logicians, analytic philosophers, linguists and computer scientists. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers from philosophy, logic, linguistics, cognitive science and artificial intelligence. There is no comparable survey in the existing literature.

Foundations of Speech Act Theory

Author: S.L. Tsohatzidis
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134866984
Release Date: 2002-09-11
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.
