This volume criticises current philosophy of language as having an altered focus without adjusting the needed conceptual tools. It develops a new theory of lexical meaning, a new conception of cognition - humans not as information processing creatures but as primarily explanation and understanding seeking creatures - with information processing as a secondary, derivative activity. Based on the theories of lexical meaning and cognition, this book sketches an argument showing that the human understanding of human understanding must always remain just partial.
