In "The Metaphysics of Meaning, Jerrold J. Katz offers a radical reappraisal of the "linguistic turn" in twentieth century philosophy. He shows that the naturalism which emerged to become the dominant philosophical position was never adequately proven. Katz critiques the major arguments for contemporary naturalism and develops a new conception of the naturalistic fallacy. This conception, inspired by Moore, explains why attempts to naturalize disciplines like linguistics and logic, and perhaps ethics, will fail. He offers a Platonist view of such disciplines, justifying it as the best explanation of their autonomy, objectivity, and normativity. Katz examines in detail both Wittgenstein's arguments for a deflationary naturalism on which metaphysics transcends the limits of language, and Quine's arguments for a scientific naturalism on which epistemology is "an enterprise within natural science." He also analyzes related arguments, including Kripke's on rule following, Chomsky's for the psychological reality of language, Dummett's on the nature of theories Of meaning, and Davidson's and Putnam's against intensionalism. Katz shows that, although largely successful against the Fregean psychologized versions of intensionalism, all these arguments fail against an intensionalism that avoids both Fregeanism and psychologism. "The Metaphysics of Meaning concludes with a reassessment of the nature of philosophical problems. It explains their recalcitrance, without, like

Realistic rationalism by Jerrold J Katz( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Realistic Rationalism, Jerrold J. Katz develops a new philosophical position integrating realism and rationalism. Realism here means that the objects of study in mathematics and other formal sciences are abstract; rationalism means that our knowledge of them is not empirical. Katz uses this position to meet the principal challenges to realism. In exposing the flaws in criticisms of the antirealists, he shows that realists can explain knowledge of abstract objects without supposing we have causal contact with them, that numbers are determinate objects, and that the standard counterexamples to the abstract/concrete distinction have no force. Generalizing the account of knowledge used to meet the challenges to realism, he develops a rationalist and nonnaturalist account of philosophical knowledge and argues that it is preferable to contemporary naturalist and empiricist accounts. The book illuminates a wide range of philosophical issues, including the nature of necessity, the distinction between the formal and natural sciences, empiricist holism, the structure of ontology, and philosophical skepticism. Philosophers will use this fresh treatment of realism and rationalism as a starting point for new directions in their own research
Sense, reference, and philosophy by Jerrold J Katz( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Sense, Reference, and Philosophy, Jerrold J. Katz develops the philosophical implications of an autonomous theory of sense. On Katz's intensionalism, sense is divorced from reference; sense mediates, but does not determine, reference. Katz argues that his theory of "thin" senses accomplishes all and only what a theory of meaning should be responsible for: representations of the sense structure of the smallest meaning-bearing elements of a language (its morphemes); a dictionary; a set of compositional principles to form the meanings of sentences; and definitions of sense properties and relations such as synonymy. The theory of reference, Katz argues, will be related to the theory of sense via a system of referential correlates." "In Sense, Reference, and Philosophy, Katz provides a modern interpretation of the insights of philosophers like Descartes, Kant, Locke, Mill, and G.E. Moore and thereby resets the agenda for current analytic philosophy. The scope and rigor of this book will make it of interest to a broad range of philosophers."--Jacket

Cogitations : cogitations by Jerrold J Katz( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cogito ergo sum of Descartes is one of the best-known (and simplest) of all philosophical formulations, but ever since it was first propounded it has defied any formal accounting of its validity. How is it that so simple and important an argument has caused such difficulty and suchphilosophical controversy? In this pioneering work, Jerrold Katz argues that the problem with the cogito lies where it is least suspected--in a deficiency in the theory of language and logic that Cartesian scholars have brought to the study of the cogito. Katz contends that the laws of traditional logic have di
