Replies to the Critics


Edward N. Zalta


Philosophical Studies, 69/2-3, March 1993, 231-242


In an author-meets-critics session at the March 1992 Pacific APA meetings, the critics (Christopher Menzel, Harry Deutsch, and C. Anthony Anderson) commented on the author's book Intensional Logic and the Metaphysics of Intentionality (Cambridge, MA: MIT/Bradford, 1988). The critical commentaries are published in this issue together with these replies by the author. The author responds to questions concerning the system he proposes, and in particular, to questions concerning the treatment of modality, the semantics of belief reports, and the general efficacy of the metaphysical foundations as compared to that of set theory.
