The proposal of a propositional content material performs a vital position in modern philosophy of language. Propositional content material makes up either the that means of sentences and the content material of propositional attitudes corresponding to trust. One specific view approximately propositional content material has been dominant in analytic philosophy, particularly the Fregean notion of propositions as summary mind-independent items that include fact stipulations. yet propositions during this feel increase a number matters, that have turn into a middle of discussion in present philosophy of language. specifically, how may still propositions as summary gadgets be understood and the way can they characterize issues and be precise or fake? a few philosophers in modern analytic philosophy in addition to in early analytic philosophy and phenomenology have approached the suggestion of a propositional content material otherwise, now not by means of beginning out with an summary fact berarer, yet through targeting cognitive acts of brokers, comparable to acts of judging. it's by way of such acts that the thought of a propositional content material, on their view, will be understood.
The act-based point of view traditionally is going again to the paintings of significant ecu philosophers, particularly that of Husserl, Twardowski, Meinong, and Reinach. besides the fact that, their paintings has been unduly overlooked and is actually principally inaccessible to modern analytic philosophers. the quantity offers a significant number of paintings of those philosophers that endure on an act-based perception of philosophical content material, a few of which in new translations (one paper by means of Reinach), a few of which released in English for the first actual time (two papers by means of Twardowski).
In addition, the quantity provides new paintings by way of top modern philosophers of language pursuing or discussing an act-based notion of propositional content material. furthermore, the ebook features a crosslinguistic research of nominalizations for activities and items, a contrast that performs a vital position within the philosophy of language of Twardowski.
