By Friederike Moltmann,Mark Textor

The thought of a propositional content material performs a valuable position in modern philosophy of language. Propositional content material makes up either the which means of sentences and the content material of propositional attitudes akin to trust. One specific view approximately propositional content material has been dominant in analytic philosophy, specifically the Fregean belief of propositions as summary mind-independent items that include fact stipulations. yet propositions during this experience increase a number matters, that have develop into a middle of dialogue in present philosophy of language. specifically, how should still propositions as summary gadgets be understood and the way can they signify issues and be real or fake? a couple of philosophers in modern analytic philosophy in addition to in early analytic philosophy and phenomenology have approached the proposal of a propositional content material otherwise, now not via beginning out with an summary fact berarer, yet through targeting cognitive acts of brokers, equivalent to acts of judging. it's when it comes to such acts that the thought of a propositional content material, on their view, could be understood.
The act-based viewpoint traditionally is going again to the paintings of critical ecu philosophers, specifically that of Husserl, Twardowski, Meinong, and Reinach. besides the fact that, their paintings has been unduly missed and is in truth mostly inaccessible to modern analytic philosophers. the amount provides a vital number of paintings of those philosophers that undergo on an act-based belief of philosophical content material, a few of which in new translations (one paper via Reinach), a few of which released in English for the first actual time (two papers by way of Twardowski).
In addition, the quantity offers new paintings via prime modern philosophers of language pursuing or discussing an act-based belief of propositional content material. furthermore, the publication includes a crosslinguistic examine of nominalizations for activities and items, a contrast that performs a relevant position within the philosophy of language of Twardowski.
