    How language works — its functions, mechanisms, and limitations — matters to the early moderns as much as it does to contemporary philosophers. Many of the moderns make reflection on language central to their philosophical projects, both as a tool for explaining human cognition and as a weapon to be used against competing views. Even in philosophers for whom language is less central, we can find important connections between their views on language and their other philosophical commitments.

    Locke’un dile ilişkin düşüncelerinin en ayırt edici yönü uzlaşımsallıktır. Locke’un dil anlayışında sözcükler ile ideler arasındaki bağlantının bir parçası olarak ortaya çıkan uzlaşımsallık unsuru, Locke’un sağın bilgiye erişmedeki amacında ilk elde her ne kadar dildeki bir yetersizlik olarak ortaya konmuş da olsa, gerek yine de bu imkana yaklaşmayı sağlayacak tek unsur olarak düşünülmesi, gerekse de iletişimin imkanını sağlamasıyla ön plana çıkmaktadır. Öyle ki, Locke’ta hakikat olsun, bilgi olsun, anlam olsun gerçek varoluşun bir iz düşümünü veren gösterilenlerde bulunduğu kadar, iletişimin birliğinde (...)

  8. John Locke on Inference and Fallacy, A Re-Appraisal.Mark Garrett Longaker - 2014 - Informal Logic 34 (4):364-392.
    John Locke, long associated with the “standard” approach to fallacies and the “logical” approach to valid inference, had both logical and dialectical reasons for favoring certain proofs and denigrating others. While the logical approach to argumentation stands forth in Locke’s philosophical writings, a dialectical approach can be found in his contributions to public controversies regarding religion and toleration. Understanding Locke’s dialectical approach to argumentation not only makes his work more relevant to the contemporary discipline of informal logic, but this understanding (...)

  14. Locke's Second ‘Secret Reference’.Terence Moore - 2013 - Think 12 (33):25-35.
    ExtractLocke's analysis of the origins of meaning is clear, coherent, cogent and devastating to our commonsense beliefs. His analysis establishes that in the last resort the meaning, he would say ‘Signification’, of words is ineluctably private, subjective, personal. Where meanings are concerned we are, Locke judged, irremediably solipsistic. ‘Words’, he notes, ‘in their primary or immediate Signification stand for nothing but Ideas in the Mind of him that uses them.’Send article to KindleTo send this article to your Kindle, first ensure (...)

  15. The Arbitrariness of the Linguistic Sign: Variations on an Enlightenment Theme.Avi Lifschitz - 2012 - Journal of the History of Ideas 73 (4):537-557.
    From the late seventeenth century to the middle of the eighteenth, an important shift occurred in attitudes to the arbitrariness of the first human words. While authors such as Locke and Pufendorf emphasized linguistic arbitrariness and human liberty, mid-eighteenth-century thinkers highlighted the natural aspects of language and the limited scope of freedom and reason. This change is linked to the contemporary view of the cultural world as a natural artifice, strongly molded by social and environmental factors. The article highlights hitherto (...)

  18. Words and Images: An Essay on the Origin of Ideas.Christopher Gauker - 2011 - Oxford University Press.
    At least since Locke, philosophers and psychologists have usually held that concepts arise out of sensory perceptions, thoughts are built from concepts, and language enables speakers to convey their thoughts to hearers. Christopher Gauker holds that this tradition is mistaken about both concepts and language. The mind cannot abstract the building blocks of thoughts from perceptual representations. More generally, we have no account of the origin of concepts that grants them the requisite independence from language. Gauker's alternative is to show (...)

La teoría semántica de los términos de sustancia de Locke ha sido, supuestamente, refutada por aquélla. Según Putnam, la teoría de Locke ha pasado por alto dos importantes contribuciones a la semántica, y principalmente a la referencia, de los términos de sustancia, a saber, la contribución de la sociedad y la del entorno.

    With the publication of Walter Ott’s Locke’s Philosophy of Language and Michael Losonsky’s Linguistic Turns in Modern Philosophy, serious scholarly attention has returned to Locke’s philosophy of language. In this exhaustively-researched book, Hannah Dawson presents a dark vision of language and the desperate seventeenth-century struggles against it, culminating in Locke’s complete and catastrophic capitulation. She argues that the dominant issue is something called “the problem of language in philosophy.” Seventeenth-century philosophers started seeing the language they used in philosophy as unstable (...)

    Although a fascination with language is a familiar feature of 20th-century empiricism, its origins reach back at least to the early modern period empiricists. John Locke offers a detailed (if sometimes puzzling) treatment of language and uses it to illuminate key regions of the philosophical topography, particularly natural kinds and essences. Locke's main conceptual tool for dealing with language is 'signification'. Locke's central linguistic thesis is this: words signify nothing but ideas. This on its face seems absurd. Don't we need (...)

    The view of language is greatly changed from early modern philosophy to later modern philosophy and to postmodern philosophy. The linguistic question in early modern philosophy, which is characterized by rationalism and empiricism, is discussed in this paper. Linguistic phenomena are not at the center of philosophical reflections in early modern philosophy. The subject of consciousness is at the center of the philosophy, which makes language serve purely as an instrument for representing thoughts.

By examining a broad sweep of pedagogical and philosophical material from antiquity to the late seventeenth century, Dr Dawson explains why language caused anxiety in writers such as Montaigne, Bacon, Descartes, Hobbes, Gassendi, Nicole, Pufendorf, Boyle, Malebranche and Locke. Locke, Language and Early-Modern Philosophy demonstrates that new developments (...)

    It has long been recognized that 'idea' was Locke's central epistemological concept. So important was it that most commentators consider it necessary to first fix what that concept was before attempting to interpret Locke's epistemology. However, identifying what it was is only possible by reconstructing how it functioned within the development and defense of his epistemology. Traditionally, in other words, scholars have approached the question the wrong way around. This dissertation is devoted to the first step of such a reconstruction, (...)

Its having truth conditions and its having the ones it has rest on empirical facts about our use of ‘x is square’. What empirical facts?
