Descriptions: Predicates or quantifiers?

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 85 (1):117 – 136 (2007)
Abstract
In this paper I revisit the main arguments for a predicate analysis of descriptions in order to determine whether they do in fact undermine Russell's theory. I argue that while the arguments without doubt provide powerful evidence against Russell's original theory, it is far from clear that they tell against a quantificational account of descriptions.
