"Millikan will be one of our most enduring contemporaryphilosophers. This book offers an invaluable perspective oncritical alternatives to her theories, and in the process not onlyclarifies her place in many contemporary debates, but alsoclarifies some of the more challenging aspects of her work. (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, 24 October 2013) "There is a nice balance between sympathetic and skepticalcommentators; and the discussion is constructive and illuminatingthroughout. The editors have provided an excellent introduction,which offers a lucid and elegant summary of Millikan s views,as well as highlighting the main points of discussion in the book.Moreover, Millikan s replies are extremely helpful inclarifying some of the stickier points in her earlierwritings Taken together, the essays collected here offer anintensive and illuminating exploration of Millikan s views.The result is an excellent addition to the literature onmetaphysics and on the philosophy of mind andlanguage.
