In this new book, the author of the classic Truth presents an original theory of meaning, demonstrates its richness, and defends it against all contenders. He surveys the diversity of twentieth-century philosophical insights into meaning and shows that his theory can reconcile these with a common-sense view of meaning as derived from use. Meaning and its companion volume Truth (now published in a revised edition) together demystify two central issues in philosophy and offer a controversial but compelling view of the relations between language, thought, and reality.

This accessible book gives academics, graduate students, and researchers a comprehensive survey of the vast, varied, and often confusing landscape of interpretive policy analysis. The book is both theoretically informed and clear and jargon-free in its wide-ranging coverage of the different interpretive approaches in policy analysis. For each approach, the author provides a strong practical example from the policy literature. He distinguishes between three distinct types of meaning--hermeneutic, discursive, and dialogical--each of which is rooted in different philosophical assumptions, underlies different approaches to interpretive analysis, and focuses on different topics in public policy. The book dispassionately discusses the specific strengths and limitations of different interpretive approaches, and combines thorough theoretical discussions with a practical orientation towards doing policy analysis. It includes an extremely comprehensive bibliography.

Dance, whether considered as an art form or embodied social practice, as product or process, is a prime subject for cultural analysis. Yet only recently have studies of dance become concerned with the ideological, theoretical, and social meanings of dance practices, performances, and institutions. In Meaning in Motion, Jane C. Desmond brings together the work of critics who have ventured into the boundaries between dance and cultural studies, and thus maps a little known and rarely explored critical site. Writing from a broad range of perspectives, contributors from disciplines as varied as art history and anthropology, dance history and political science, philosophy and women's studies, chart the questions and challenges that mark this site. How does dance enact or rework social categories of identity? How do meanings change as dance styles cross borders of race, nationality, or class? How do we talk about materiality and motion, sensation and expressivity, kinesthetics and ideology? The authors engage these issues in a variety of contexts: from popular social dances to the experimentation of the avant-garde; from nineteenth-century ballet and contemporary Afro-Brazilian Carnival dance to hip hop, the dance hall, and film; from the nationalist politics of folk dances to the feminist philosophies of modern dance. Meaning in Motion broadens the scope of dance analysis and extends to cultural studies new ways of approaching matters of embodiment, identity, and representation. Giving definition to a new field of study, it will interest students and scholars of dance, art, and theatre history, as well as readers in cultural, performance, and women's studies. Contributors.

Pope's fascination with print--with annotations, illustrations, parallel texts, title-pages, revisions-- shapes this reading of his work. The book offers fresh insights into Pope's self-presentation and his relation to his readers: he emerges as a figure marginalized socially, politically, and sexually, who gambles with his private life in confronting his opponents.

This work goes back to the sources of modern English words and studies the development of vocabulary over time. It examines what constitutes a word, with a discussion of words that look and sound the same, words that have several meanings, and "words" that are made up of more than one "word". As well as considering the borrowing of words from other languages throughout the history of English as a means of increasing the vocabulary, the book also outlines how English forms new words by exploiting the structure of existing words, through processes of derivation and compounding. The meaning of a word is composite of a number of relations: reference to external context, relations with other words of a similar or opposite meaning, collocational relations, and so on. The book grapples with the meaning problem, but then goes on to look at the contexts in which words are used and the purposes for which they are used, raising the question whether it is more sensible to talk about English "vocabularies" rather than English "vocabulary".
