Saul Kripke

Philosophical Troubles: Collected Papers, Volume 1
(Oxford University Press, 2011)

This is the first of a series of volumes collecting the essential articles by the eminent and highly influential philosopher. The topics in this mixture of published and unpublished articles from various stages of Kripke’s storied career range over epistemology, linguistics, pragmatics, philosophy of language, history of analytic philosophy, theory of truth, and metaphysics. Included here are seminal and much discussed pieces such as “Identity and Necessity,” “Outline of a Theory of Truth,” “Speaker’s Reference and Semantic Reference,” and “A Puzzle About Belief.” Among more recent published articles are “Russell’s Notion of Scope” and “Frege’s Theory of Sense and Reference.” Several older and newer works are published here for the first time, including “A Puzzle on Time and Thought,” written expressly for this volume. Saul Kripke is a distinguished professor of philosophy at the Graduate Center.
