About this product
- DescriptionThe problem of the nature of fiction and the problem of nexistence are closely tied because fiction often talks about nexistent entities. In Fiction, Reference, and Nonexistence, A. P. Martinich and Avrum Stroll, two of America's leading philosophers, explore fiction and undertake an analytic philosophical study of fiction and its reference and its relation to truth. Included in the discussion is the authors' new, contemporary theory of fiction developed as an extension of the speech act theory of H. P. Grice, as well as the relationship between nexistence and Bertrand Russell's well-kwn theory of definite descriptions, and Hilary Putnam's theory of the relationship between common names and the world.
- Author BiographyA. P. Martinich is Roy Allison Vaughan Centennial Professor in Philosophy at the University of Texas, Austin and the author of more than a dozen books.

Avrum Stroll is professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of California at San Diego.
