2. Sbardolini, Giorgio. From Language to Thought: On the Logical Foundations of Semantic Theory.

Degree: PhD, Philosophy, 2019, The Ohio State University

Sentences have meanings: the things we say, and the things we believe. Semantics is thetheory of meaning, and thoughts, or the meanings of sentences, are among the objectsof semantic theory. But what are meanings? What is the place of meaning in the naturalworld? In the discussion below, I shall motivate formal constraints on the logical andmetaphysical foundations of semantic theory.Some philosophers have suggested that semantics is a piece of modal metaphysics.The modal approach to meaning covers a lot of empirical and conceptual ground, but ultimately fails, since the mechanism invoked to recombine the metaphysical and theepistemic dimension leads to inconsistency by paradoxical reasoning. The lesson is that sameness of meaning is a hyperintensional notion.Other paradoxes follow more generally from assuming that thoughts canbe individuated to a more or less precise degree, e.g. as the only thoughts having a certainproperty. These assumptions are often very plausible. Some contemporary accounts ofthe intensional paradoxes save consistency at the cost of rejecting these plausible assumptions. This puzzling situation leads naturally to wonder about the conditions for referringto thoughts: how do we individuate them?Reference to abstract objects may be established by abstraction. On this proposal, sameness of meaning is equated with hyperintensional equivalence. Such notioncannot be as fine-grained as contemporary accounts of structured propositions take it tobe, on pain of ruling out a compelling pragmatic account of redundancy in the use of language. Any plausible hyperintensional notion of equivalence faces, in higher-order logic, theRussell-Myhill paradox. However, consistency can be restored by a dynamic understanding of abstraction. On the resulting picture, thoughts are “shadows of sentences”, to use an image of W.V. O. Quine, and quantification over thoughts is understood predicatively. This is the logicand metaphysics for the foundations of semantics. Advisors/Committee Members: Shapiro, Stewart (Advisor).
