Philosophical Relevance of Language
The book is an attempt to examine the philosophical relevance of language from the methodological point of view. Moreover, an effort has been made that language is relevant to philosophy, because it helps in developing a philosophy of language and a philosophy with a linguistic turn subsequently known as linguistic philosophy. The book highlights the following issues:?Are the problems in Philosophy linguistic??Is the positivists? thesis circular??Does language require revision??Are the metaphors like ?form of life? or ?game? enough to sustain the charge of revisionism??Is language related to reality??In what sense language is said to be mirror of human mind?
