Thought, Reference, and Experience is a collection of important new essays on topics at the intersection of philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, and philosophical logic. The starting-point for the papers is the brilliant work of the British philosopher Gareth Evans before his untimely death in 1980 at the age of 34. Evans's work on reference and singular thought transformed the Fregean approach to the philosophy of thought and language, showing how seemingly technical issues in philosophical semantics are inextricably linked to fundamental questions about the structure of our thinking about ourselves and about the world. The papers, all newly written for this volume, explore different aspects of Evans's philosophical legacy, showing its importance to central areas in contemporary analytic philosophy. The volume includes a substantial introduction that introduces the principal themes in Evans's thought and places the papers in context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a remarkable collection well worthy of its remarkable subject. The movement of each paper is centrifugal, as the subtitle promises, stepping out from Evans's influential work to explore the ideas and theories promoted by it. * Maximilian de Gaynesford, Mind *
Evans was a highly critical person. But I think he would have been gratified by this collection of essays in his honour. * David Smith, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
