Identity, Language, and Mind

An Introduction to the Philosophy of John Perry

Edited by Albert Newen and Raphael van Riel

As one of the world's most eminent living philosophers, John Perry has covered a remarkable breadth of subjects in his published work, including semantics, indexicality, self-knowledge, personal identity, and consciousness. Looking particularly at the way in which he deals with issues of self, communication, and reality, this volume is organized in seven chapters that highlight a different aspect of Perry's work on the intersection of these subjects. A fundamental work for students and scholars, Identity, Language, and Mind explores questions that are not only essential in understanding Perry's writings, but also contemporary philosophy as a whole.

Albert Newen is professor of philosophy (Institut für Philosophie II) at the Ruhr-Universtität Bochum. Raphael van RIel is a lecturer at the Institut für Philosophie II, Ruhr-Universtität Bochum.
