By Friederike Moltmann,Mark Textor

The inspiration of a propositional content material performs a imperative position in modern philosophy of language. Propositional content material makes up either the which means of sentences and the content material of propositional attitudes resembling trust. One specific view approximately propositional content material has been dominant in analytic philosophy, particularly the Fregean belief of propositions as summary mind-independent gadgets that include fact stipulations. yet propositions during this feel increase a variety of matters, that have turn into a middle of discussion in present philosophy of language. particularly, how should still propositions as summary items be understood and the way can they signify issues and be actual or fake? a few philosophers in modern analytic philosophy in addition to in early analytic philosophy and phenomenology have approached the thought of a propositional content material otherwise, no longer by means of beginning out with an summary fact berarer, yet by way of targeting cognitive acts of brokers, equivalent to acts of judging. it really is by way of such acts that the concept of a propositional content material, on their view, will be understood.
The act-based viewpoint traditionally is going again to the paintings of relevant eu philosophers, particularly that of Husserl, Twardowski, Meinong, and Reinach. in spite of the fact that, their paintings has been unduly ignored and is in truth mostly inaccessible to modern analytic philosophers. the amount offers a significant number of paintings of those philosophers that endure on an act-based notion of philosophical content material, a few of which in new translations (one paper by way of Reinach), a few of which released in English for the first actual time (two papers by means of Twardowski).
In addition, the quantity offers new paintings by way of prime modern philosophers of language pursuing or discussing an act-based notion of propositional content material. furthermore, the publication features a crosslinguistic research of nominalizations for activities and items, a contrast that performs a relevant position within the philosophy of language of Twardowski.
