Philosophy of Language

'Artificiality' and Meaning

Philosophy of language examines language as a median between humans and the natural world. Subjects pertaining to philosophy of language include the study of composition, semantics and logic, reference, and much more. This essay, however, is primarily concerned with meaning. An important note for this section is that the uses of the term ‘language’ are not limited to spoken or written word. Instead, references to language should be considered as the means by which organisms gather and present information.
