Abstract

Meaning and Uselessness: How to Think about Derogatory Words


Williams explains why there might have been some point to a linguistic approach in ethics. I suggest that there might be some point to paying attention to an ethical dimension in philosophy of language. I shall consider words that I label 'derogatory', and questions they raise about linguistic meaning.Article
