Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

In order to perfectly describe the world, it is not enough to speak truly. In this ambitious and ground-breaking book, Theodore Sider argues that for a representation to be fully successful, truth is not enough; the representation must also use the right concepts--concepts that carve at the joints--so that its conceptual structure matches reality's structure.   Writers have always welcomed this intervention and inspiration of the world in the work of composition.
