Perspectives in Pragmatics, Philosophy and Psychology deals with theoretical pragmatics and pragmatics from a philosophical point of view. The connection between philosophy and pragmatics is double. On the one hand, philosophy contributes to creating a framework to be called the ‘pragmatics of language’ capable of dealing with interpretation phenomena that complement purely semantic processes; on the other hand, pragmatics is capable of coping with major philosophical problems, e.g. skepticism and Gettier’s problem. All volumes in the collection reserve a central place for the philosophical ideas in pragmatics, such as contributions to epistemology in which pragmatics plays a key role.
The collection: Perspectives in Pragmatics, Philosophy and Psychology publishes:
- pragmatics applied to philosophical problems and in the area of pragmalinguistics
- pragmatics applied to the understanding of propositional attitudes, including knowledge, belief, in dissolving paradoxes and puzzles relating to epistemology.
- pragmatics applied to psychology, especially on the topic of intentions and mind-reading
- philosophical treatments of dialogue analysis
The collection is not interested in proposals on conversation analysis or discourse analysis, unless a connection with philosophical issues is made obvious.
