Abstract
In the core chapters 4–6, Iacona argues against the “Uniqueness Thesis”, stating that “there is a unique notion of logical form that fulfils both the logical role and the semantic role”, where the former “concerns the formal explanation of logical properties and logical relations, such as validity or contradiction”, and the latter “concerns the formulation of a compositional theory of meaning”. He argues for this on the basis of relations of coreference among referential expressions, names and indexicals. From what I take to be a fundamental agreement on most relevant issues, here I will nonetheless press him to clarify the notions of intrinsicness and the logical and semantic role of logical form on which he relies.
