These fifteen original essays address the core semantic concepts of reference andreferring from both philosophical and linguistic perspectives. After an introductory essay thatcasts current trends in reference and referring in terms of an ongoing dialogue between Fregean andRussellian approaches, the book addresses specific topics, balancing breadth of coverage withthematic unity.

The contributors, all leading or emerging scholars, addresstrenchant neo-Fregean challenges to the direct reference position; consider what positive claims canbe made about the mechanism of reference; address the role of a theory of reference within broadertheoretical context; and investigate other kinds of linguistic expressions used in referringactivities that may themselves be referring expressions. The topical unity and accessibility of theessays, the stage-setting introductory essay, and the comprehensive index combine to make Reference and Referring, along with the other books in the Topics in ContemporaryPhilosophy series, appropriate for use in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses.
