ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I am indebted to Herb Hendry for his patience, help, encouragement, criticism, and advice, throughout. In Chapter 4, especially, I am additionally indebted to conversations with Barbara Abbott. Parts of Chapter 6 benefited greatly from discussions with Rich Hall. Thanks also to the members of my committee -- Herbert Hendry, Joseph Hanna, Richard Hall, Mark Risjord, Winston Wilkinson, and Alan Beretta -- and to all my teachers of philosophy at Michigan State University. Acknowledgment is also owed John Searle in this connection. I have learnt much in opposing him. Above all, I am grateful to family and friends: to my parents, Howard and Muriel Hauser, for their unfailing love and support; and especially to Barbara.
