Neuropsychological data, intuitions, and semantic theories

Mind and Society 4 (2):149-162 (2005)
Abstract
1. The issue - The reflection I am proposing was stimulated by some recent research on the mental processing of proper names. However, the issue I am raising is independent of both the particular nature of such results and the fact that they are accepted as well established. The question I would like to ask is whether (neuro)psychological results on the mental processing of language can falsify (or confirm) semantic theses about natural language. By a semantic thesis I mean something like any of the following.
Keywords Semantics  Neuropsychology  Linguistic intuitions  Proper names  Kripke
