Definite Descriptions

A Reader

edited by Gary Ostertag


Bertrand Russell's theory of definite descriptions sparked an ongoing
debate concerning the proper logical and linguistic analysis of
definite descriptions. While it is now widely acknowledged that, like
the indexical expressions 'I', 'here', and 'now', definite
descriptions in natural language are context-sensitive, there is
significant disagreement as to the ultimate challenge this
context-sensitivity poses to Russell's theory.

This reader is intended both to introduce students to the philosophy
of language via the theory of descriptions, and to provide scholars in
analytic philosophy with ready access to some of the central
contributions in this area. It includes classic works by Russell,
Carnap, Strawson, Lambert, Donnellan, Grice, Peacocke, Kripke,
Wettstein, Soames, Neale, and Schiffer.


Gary Ostertag is a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Philosophy at
New York University.
