Abstract

In a number of interrelated articles, I have presented some ideas about the nature of proper names, and specifically about their meaning. A central concept of these papers has been subjected to criticism, I believe inappropriately, by several scholars. The present paper is a rejoinder which defends a close approximation to the position taken in the earlier ones. It shows how that position can be reconciled in some measure with their apparently divergent views, whilst rejecting or suggesting modification of other aspects of both their critiques and my stated position.
