About the Book

A collection of twelve essays by John Perry and two essays he co-authored, this book deals with various problems related to self-locating beliefs: the sorts of beliefs one expresses with indexicals and demonstratives, like I and this. Postscripts have been added to a number of the essays discussing criticisms by authors such as Gareth Evans and Robert Stalnaker. Included with such well-known essays as Frege on Demonstratives, The Problem of the Essential Indexical, From Worlds to Situations, and The Prince and the Phone Booth are a number of important essays that have been less accessible and that discuss important aspects of Perry's views, referred to as Critical Referentialism, on the philosophy of language and the philosophy of mind.
