In my main time, I am a mathematician working in logic and category theory. As a logician, I am familiar with some bits of philosophy of language.
Stuff I have read:
Word and object, Quine.
Naming and Necessity, Kripke.
Tractatus logico-philosophicus, Wittgenstein.
Several works in logic by Tarski and Godel, some works by Lambek. I have also a very gentle background in Lacanian psychoanalysis.
At this point in my studies, I feel I would like to attack my ignorance in the topic of philosophy of language with a more systematic and organized study, thus I would like to gather a bibliography on the subject. That's why I am here.
A couple of rules.
- Please, suggest me at least a manual, not just a collection of authors. I really feel like I am missing the big picture.
- If you suggest an author, please contextualize it, is it more of a philosopher, a linguist, maybe a mathematician?
- If you suggest an author, please consider to suggest an order to study the scientific production, should I read just everything? Parts of it?
I have seen that on this website someone asked this question. Yet, I do not have the impression that it answers my question. My level is low indeed, but the OP makes clear that his/her level was even more basic than mine.
