Two new art-based OUP blog entries for my books 'Abstract Objects' (2013) and 'Parts and Wholes in Semantics' (1997)

This OUP blog entry introduces my 2013 book on abstract objects to a wider readership. It relates the theme of the book to two forms of abstract art and draws an (ontological) core-periphery distinction that may be as hard to define clearly as the Chomskyan one, but is just as indispensible (for natural language ontology).


This OUP blog entry makes use of op(tical) art to display key aspects of the overall view of my 1997 book 'Parts and Wholes in Semantics':


And another OUP blog entry forthe edited volume 'Act-Based Conceptions of Propositional Content'::

'What sorts of things are the things we believe, hope or predict?'
