Look Inside

Situations and Individuals


“A sparkling contribution to the linguistic and philosophical literature on anaphora and descriptions. Original, thorough, well-presented, and immensely thought-provoking -- in short, required reading.”
Stephen Neale, Professor of Philosophy, Rutgers University
“Paul Elbourne's work is the latest, and in several areas likely the last, word on several issues in the interpretation of nominal anaphora. As he stresses, the great variety of phenomena from several languages that can now be discussed at a high level call for a detailed discussion of critical examples. This Elbourne provides for us, now and for the future.”
James Higginbotham, Linda Hilf Chair in Philosophy and Professor of Linguistics, University of Southern California
Situations and Individuals takes on an ambitious task: to present a unified analysis of proper names and all kinds of pronouns. Subtle linguistic facts are brought to bear on old and new debates in linguistics and philosophy. Elbourne's book combines the best of both disciplines.”
Angelika Kratzer, Professor of Linguistics, University of Massachusetts Amherst
