About the Author

Francois Recanati has been a research fellow at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Paris since 1979. He is the author of Perspectival Thought (OUP, 2007) and various other publications in the philosophy of language and philosophy of mind.


The book is an important contribution to the debate on the relationship between semantics and pragmatics, and to discussions of particular linguistic phenomena featured in the case studies. Anyone interested in any of these issues should certainly read it. * Karen Lewis, Mind *
a rich and provocative book, which is eloquently written ... There is no doubt in my mind that Truth-Conditional Pragmatics will become a standard reference for future discussions pertaining to semantics, pragmatics and the distinction between the two. * Berit Brogaard, Analysis *
