  1. Two-Dimensional Semantics.Manuel Garcia-Carpintero & Josep Macià (eds.) - 2006 - Oxford: Clarendon Press.
    Two-dimensional semantics is a framework that helps us better understand some of the most fundamental issues in philosophy: those having to do with the relationship between the meaning of words, the way the world is, and our knowledge of the meaning of words. This selection of new essays by some of the world's leading authorities in this field sheds fresh light both on foundational issues regarding two-dimensional semantics and on its specific applications. Contributors: Richard Breheny, Alex Byrne, David Chalmers, Martin (...)

    On the Interpretation of Formal Languages and the Analysis of Logical Properties.Josep Macià - 2000 - Theoria: Revista de Teoría, Historia y Fundamentos de la Ciencia 15 (2):235-258.
    We can distinguish different senses in which a formal language can be said to have been provided with an interpretation. We focus on two: We provide a model and a definition of satisfaction and truth in the standard way We provide a translation into a natural language. We argue that the sentences of a formal language interpreted as in do not have meaning. A formal language interpreted as in models the way the truth of a sentence would be affected by (...)

    Presuposicion Y Significado Expresivo.Josep Macià - 2002 - Theoria 17 (3):499-513.
    Presuppositions are well known phenomena. One way of treating them is as partial 'meaning-functions '. There is an attractive argument that holds that in order to explain the contrast between such sentences as "John came into the room" and "That bastard John came into the room" it is required to make our semantic theory essentially more complex. This argument appeals to the fact that contrasts such as the ones just mentioned play a role in the validity of logical inferences. In (...)

  5. Does Naming and Necessity Refute Descriptivism?Josep Macià - 1998 - Theoria 13 (3):445-476.
    In Naming and Necessity Saul Kripke offers a number of arguments in order to show that no descriptivist theory of proper names is correct. We present here a certain version of descriptivist theory -we will characterize it as an individual-use reference-fixing descriptivist theory that appeals to descriptions regarding how a name is used by other speakers. This kind of theory can successfully answer all the objections Kripke puts forward in Naming and Necessity. Such sort of descriptivist theory is furthermore compatible (...)

    Is Horwich’s Deflationary Account of Meaning an Alternative of Truth-Theoretic Semantics?Josep Macià - 2005 - ProtoSociology 21:129-147.
    In recent writings Paul Horwich has pursued two related aims: To show “how small a constraint is provided by compositionality”. “The compositionality of meaning imposes no constraint at all on how the meaning properties of words are constituted”. To present a deflationary alternative to the “Davidsonian truth-theoretic perspective” The paper has three sections: in section 1 I make some comments on compositionality, in section 2 I argue that Horwich does not succeed in achieving aim, and in section 3 I argue (...)
