Review "Combines careful, detailed argumentation with inspiration and synoptic vision for the bigger picture.Semantic Relationism Textbook ... One can reasonably expect Fine's book to be a spur for thinking about these issues for many years to come." (Mind, October 2009) Review “With characteristic brilliance and rigor, Kit Fine advances a radically new conception of semantic structure that casts light from an unexpected direction on the nature of compositionality and the theory of direct reference.”Tim Williamson, Oxford University “How can two sentences represent the world as being precisely the same way, yet differ in meaning, and express propositions that are rationally believed in different circumstances? Echoing themes initially broached by such philosophers as Hilary Putnam and David Kaplan, Kit Fine answers with a novel conception of semantics uniting the two-sided connection of meaning with mind and world, and culminating in an ingenious, representationalist theory designed to incorporate contemporary Millianism while accommodating traditional Fregean intuitions. A delight to read, the book will be mined for its ideas and arguments for years to come.” Scott Soames, University of Southern California
