Item description for Meaning, Understanding, and Practice: Philosophical Essays by Barry Stroud...

Meaning, Understanding, and Practice is a selection of the most notable essays of leading contemporary philosopher Barry Stroud on a set of topics central to analytic philosophy. In this collection, Stroud offers penetrating studies of meaning, understanding, necessity, and the intentionality of thought. Throughout he asks how much can be expected from a philosophical account of one's understanding of the meaning of something, and questions whether such an account can succeed without implying that the person understands many other things as well. Most of the essays work with ideas derived from Wittgenstein, and five of the essays focus specifically on Wittgenstein's philosophy. Stroud's helpful introduction draws out the recurring themes he pursues and explains how his ideas and aims have developed over the years.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meaning, Understanding, and Practice: Philosophical Essays?

Another excellent collection...  Nov 18, 2001
This is a collection of Stroud's major articles on Wittgenstein, Quine, and theories of meaning. The more important articles here engage various interpretations of Wittgenstein, notably Dummett on necessity and Pears's False Prison. This text is a "must have" for any serious student of analytic philosophy, especially for those who are interested in Wittgenstein. Also, it contains a superb article that critiques Searle's theory of intentionality (i.e., the role of the Background in that theory).
