In Richard Brown Kevin S. Decker (ed.), Terminator and Philosophy (2009)
|Abstract||Maybe they should never have called the first movie The Terminator. After all, thereâ€™s more than one Terminator. That may seem like a picky point, but, believe it or not, philosophers have long been obsessed with trying to determine the meaning of the word â€œthe.â€ Indeed, much controversy swirls around this seemingly innocuous definite article. Specifically, the controversy focuses on whether or not definite descriptions are ambiguous.|
