  1. Talking to Cats, Rats and Bats.K. V. Wilkes - 1997 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 42:177-.
    This paper tries to argue that at least some alluring, trendy or fashionable problems to do with thought and language — several of which are discussed in this volume — are in fact alluring, trendy or fashionable red herrings or cul-de-sacs.
