Philosophy of Language

 On the essence of language and how we acquire language.
A few notes after my class today.

Mostly, this is helping me think through what we discussed today, how the authors’s views connect and diverge, their ideas, and my ideas about language, as much as it is my ideas of what they think, as far as my understanding goes. This post is under construction.

Plato: Essences

John Locke: Blank slates

Jerry Fodor: Baseline
