Simon Blackburn presents a selection of his philosophical essays from 1995 to
2010. He offers engaging and illuminating discussions of various problems which
arise when such familiar notions as representation, truth, reason, and
assertion are applied in the sphere of practical thought. It is puzzling how
our thinking gets to grip with such things as values and norms. Blackburn
explores how we can try to understand what we say in terms of what we are doing
when we say it. He investigates how propositions interact with linguistic
expressions whose primary function is identified in terms of actions performed
in expressing commitments with them, when those commitments are thought of in
practical rather than descriptive terms. He broadens his investigation from
semantic questions to wider issues of pluralism, pragmatism, philosophy of
mind, and the nature of practical reasoning.
