"The Objects of Thought is a rich book, full of ideas and arguments. Making room for non-existent objects is a complicated business, and Crane covers a lot of ground very clearly. So this is a great book for anyone who wishes to get a sophisticated overview of the debate about non-existent objects. Because I have only been able to discuss a very small part of this complicated issue, my suggestion is to go out and read the book." --Analysis Reviews

"Ambitious, ingenious, and lucid . . . Crane's excellent book . . . has all sorts of interesting and insightful things to say about metaphysics, language, and intentionality. There is a great deal to be learned about these things from TheObjects of Thought, whether or not one ultimately agrees with the details of Crane's positive view. Crane also has a fluid clear style that makes his book a pleasure to read. So I recommend it very warmly, not merely to those interested in the nonexistent, but to all those interested in metaphysics and intentionality." -- Mind

"His discussion throughout is both delightfully clear and eminently sensiblea quality that is rarer than it should be in view of much recent metaphysical extravagance in analytic philosophy . . . Tim's Crane's account is, all told, of considerable merit, and can be recommended to anyone concerned with the nature of the mind." -- The Times Literary Supplement

"ingenious, full of insight and wonderfully clearly written." -- The Philosophical Quarterly

"elegant and original." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"Crane offers a solid contribution to the debate on the problem of intentional inexistence . . . Highly recommended." -- CHOICE

"I recommend it highly to those interested not only in the specific matters with which it deals, but also to philosophers of mind more generally." -- Philosophy

"a rich book, full of ideas and arguments . . . Crane covers a lot of ground very clearly. So this is a great book for anyone who wishes to get a sophisticated overview of the debate about non-existent objects. " -- Analysis

4.0 von 5 Sternen Profound analysis 29. August 2014
Von Andrew Langridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Although quite technical and probably directed primarily at an academic audience, this book rewards serious attention. Crane's version of representationalism is very appealing, and here he deals effectively with the seemingly timeless question dealt with by Aristotle and Russell concerning negative existential statements. In saying "the planet Volcan does not exist" we appear to contradict ourselves. How is it possible to mention Volcan, let alone say anything truthful about it, if it doesn't exist? Crane's answer is that truth is better understood as explanation rather than as direct association between our representations and the world that they purport to be about.

Why is this important? If we can be mistaken about our perceptions and if we talk about non-existent things in the same way as we do about existent things, then what justification have we for stating anything about the ordinary world?

One word of warning.. the kindle download is not properly formatted in book form.

good book for students and researchers to learn and study intentionality, its origins and development nowadays. Crane keeps his clear style in writing philosophy.
