Stephen Schiffer presents an innovative account of meaning and belief, and shows how it can illuminate a range of crucial problems regarding language, mind, knowledge and ontology. He introduces the new doctrine of "pleonastic propositions" to explain what the things we mean and believe are. He discusses the relation between semantic and psychological facts, on the one hand, and physical facts, on the other; vagueness and indeterminacy; moral truth; conditionals; and the role of propositional content in information acquisition and explanation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
rich, complex and thought provoking * Peter Pagin, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
... new and original work ... it repays serious study by offering a fresh perspective on many issues in the philosophy of language and related disciplines. It is likely to be discussed for many years to come ... the ideas present in this monograph are interesting and original. The Things We Mean will yet further enhance Schiffer's reputation as one of the leading English-speaking philosophers of his generation. * Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie *
