Regardless of its particular topic, each of Donald Davidsona s essays is part of a comprehensive progrqamme to address questions about language, mind and action, and their interconnections. Themes from this larger programme permeate and bind his work on semantics: on the notions of meaning and truth, on theories of truth, reference, logical form and inference, compositionality, a intentionala operators, indeterminacy, conceptual relativism, skepticism and metaphor. Twenty--eight critical essays, including a substantial introduction to Davidsona s philosophy of language, and three essays by Davidson himself, make up this volume. The volumea s six sections corespond to the major section of Davidsona s inquiries into Truth and Interpretation. Each contains critical essays addressing, interpreting and further develoing his views. The first section, written by the editor, gives an overview of the whole volume, the second section focuses on truth and meaning; the third, applications of Davidsona s semantic theory; the fourth, radical interpretation; the fifth, language and reality, and the sixth, limits of the literal.
