Having an interpretation [Book Review]

Philosophical Studies 150 (3):449 - 459 (2010)
Abstract
I investigate what it means to have an interpretation of our language, how we manage to bestow a determinate interpretation to our utterances, and to which extent our interpretation of the world is determinate. All this is done in dialogue with van Fraassen's insightful discussion of Putnam's model-theoretic argument and of scientific structuralism
