Is linguistic meaning to be accounted for independently of the states of mind of language users, or can it only be explained in terms of them? If the latter, what account of the mental states in question avoids circularity? In this book Brian Loar offers a subtle and comprehensive theory that both preserves the natural priority of the mind in explanations of meaning, and gives an independent characterisation of its features. the nature of meaning and its relation to the mind is probably the area of paramount concern among philosophers. The theory presented here, by its reach and substance and the thoroughness and sophistication of its development, makes a major contribution to the debate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Mind and Meaning is an impressive book - both for its wide-ranging discussion and synthesis of relevant literature and for the novel twist it gives to familiar strands from the philosophies of mind and language. [It is] the most elaborately articulated contribution to date to functionalist theories of propositional attitudes.' Nous
'Every philosopher of mind in the mainstream British and American tradition should read this book.' Philosophy of Science
