On semantics and saṃketa: Thoughts on a neglected problem with buddhist apoha doctrine [Book Review]
Journal of Indian Philosophy 34 (5):415-478 (2006)
Abstract“...a theory of meaning for a particular language should be conceived by a philosopher as describing the practice of linguistic interchange by speakers of the language without taking it as already understood what it is to have a language at all: that is what, by imagining such a theory, we are trying to make explict." – Michael Dummer (2004: 31)
