  • A Comparison of Cassirer’s Theory of Language and Meaning with Logical Empiricism and Linguistic Analysis.Randal R. Marlin - 1961 - Dissertation, McGill
    Throughout the history of the philosophy of language, roughly two traditions can be discerned.

I need an excuse for wandering from Wittgenstein's Tractatus to Picasso's drawing of a Weeping Woman, via the philosophy of science and the theory of sense data. The thesis of the paper is that I have such an excuse. These are all areas where the concept of representation either exists in its own right, or has been found to be illuminating by philosophers. An important question is whether it could be the same concept (...)
