The language-thought partnership: A Bird's eye view

Language and Communication 21 (2):157-166 (2001)

Ruth Millikan
University of Connecticut
I sketch in miniature the whole of my work on the relation between language and thought. Previously I have offered closeups of this terrain in various papers and books, and I reference them freely. But my main purpose here is to explain the relations among the parts, hoping this can serve as a short introduction to my work on language and thought for some, and for others as a clarification of the larger plan
