    Reference

    • Pieter A. M. Seuren, The logic of language, vol. II of Language from within; (vol. I: Language in cognition) Oxford University Press 2010

    has been added at linguistics and at logic. Among other things it studied the logic in natural languages, which is quite different from classical and mathematical logic. In trying to develop a natural theory of meaning, he is not happy with intensionality being neglected in mathematical logic, and even when intensional aspects are accounted for (like in the notion of possible worlds) he argues that they are not the true intensional aspects as human mind sees them but rather just upgrade of extensional aspects. Quite good critic of Chomskian linguistics (e.g. minimalist program) as well.
