Concepts and Reference. Defending a Dual Theory of Natural Kind Concepts

Jylkkä Jussi

Categorisation and reference have thus far been largely considered as separate notions, the former belonging to psychology of concepts, the latter to philosophy of language. In the present thesis, the author bridges this gap and brings the study of reference out from the armchair into the domain of empirical science. The author presents a dual theory of natural kind concepts, which has important advantages over traditional theories of reference in philosophy, and conventional accounts of concepts in psychology.
