This book provides an up-to-date and coherent version of Soames' theory of propositions. . . . However, this work is far from being just the result of collecting together the author's previous achievement in this field. On the contrary, it contains an original proposal while also representing years of research in a systematic and persuasive essay. ---Edoardo Rivello, MathSciNet By incorporating elements of philosophy of mind into language and metaphysics, this book represents an important turn in thinking about propositions. The book is certain to have a significant impact in discussions of logic, language, and mind in 21st-century analytic philosophy. * Choice *
