Vol 34 No 2 (2020): Inferring Truth and Meaning
Inferring Truth and Meaning

The disciplines of general philosophy, philosophy of language, and linguistics have in common an interest in saying what it is that we can infer: what meaning, what truth; and how those inferences are to be justified. The papers collected in this special issue all contribute further to these continuing discussions. They exhibit a wide range of approaches and starting points, and, taken together, we believe that this collection provides a stimulating overview of some key current concerns in the fields of argumentation, linguistics, and philosophy of language, in particular the role of inferring in both reasoning and understanding.
