Anti-realism: the manifestation of semantic knowledge

Slade, C (1982) Anti-realism: the manifestation of semantic knowledge. PhD thesis, Australian National University.

Abstract

Realistic views are fashionable. In this thesis, Slade defends a view opposed to realism, which Dummett calls "anti-realism". Her defence of anti-realism depends on the assumption that a theory of meaning should explain how speakers understand one another. The theory should therefore describe linguistic abilities in terms of communicable features of linguistic practice: those which are exhaustively manifest in use. She calls this the manifestation argument.
