|Abstract||(in Chomsky and His Critics, edited [heroically] by Louise Antony and Norbert Hornstein, Blackwell 2003) You may need to “Rotate View, Clockwise” to get the .pdf file to appear properly. This paper was written in 1998, and so may be past its use-by date. Updated versions of various bits of the paper appear elsewhere; see note 1. More Truth in Advertising: I’m not criticizing Chomsky; though I am being critical, and Chomsky does figure prominently. The idea, as the subtitle suggests, is that there are analytic truths–even if the notion of synonymy is suspect. The trick involves (can you guess?) combining, in the right way, a neo-Davidsonian event semantics with a Minimalist syntax. Blatant Advertising: get hold of the entire book if only for Chomsky’s replies; for anyone interested Chomsky’s conception of meaning (and his semantic internalism), see especially his replies to Egan, Rey, Ludlow, Horwich, and Pietroski.|
