The idea of a propositional content material performs a principal function in modern philosophy of language. Propositional content material makes up either the which means of sentences and the content material of propositional attitudes reminiscent of trust. One specific view approximately propositional content material has been dominant in analytic philosophy, particularly the Fregean belief of propositions as summary mind-independent items that include fact stipulations. yet propositions during this experience bring up a variety of matters, that have turn into a middle of discussion in present philosophy of language. particularly, how may still propositions as summary gadgets be understood and the way can they symbolize issues and be actual or fake? a few philosophers in modern analytic philosophy in addition to in early analytic philosophy and phenomenology have approached the idea of a propositional content material otherwise, no longer by way of beginning out with an summary fact berarer, yet by way of targeting cognitive acts of brokers, comparable to acts of judging. it's by way of such acts that the inspiration of a propositional content material, on their view, may be understood.
The act-based standpoint traditionally is going again to the paintings of critical eu philosophers, particularly that of Husserl, Twardowski, Meinong, and Reinach. despite the fact that, their paintings has been unduly missed and is in truth mostly inaccessible to modern analytic philosophers. the quantity offers a principal number of paintings of those philosophers that undergo on an act-based notion of philosophical content material, a few of which in new translations (one paper through Reinach), a few of which released in English for the first actual time (two papers by means of Twardowski).
In addition, the quantity offers new paintings by way of major modern philosophers of language pursuing or discussing an act-based notion of propositional content material. additionally, the publication features a crosslinguistic learn of nominalizations for activities and items, a contrast that performs a important position within the philosophy of language of Twardowski.
