Meaning, Context, and Logical Truth

Abstract : Formal semantics emerged at the interface of logic and philosophy of language in the early 1970's as a result of using tools provided by logic and model-theory to study natural language. We start by discussing the philosophical motivations, in particular compositionality and truth-conditionality, behind those early developments. We then turn to the question of how to reconcile the context-dependence of meaning in natural language with the conception of logical truth as 'truth in virtue of meaning'. We end with a discussion of some open issues related to the notion of validity in indexical intensional logics.
