"This book is an ingenious defense of two positions not widely thought to be compatible: truth-conditional semantics and semantic minimalism. Cappelen and Lepore's highly controversial views are already, and will continue to be, at the center of inquiry into the nature of linguistic communication." Jason Stanley, University of Michigan
"Cappelen and Lepore have performed a singular service in bringing together the threads of the contextualist debate, and in formulating a minimalist alternative to some current trends." James Higginbotham, University of Southern California
"This is a pleasingly spare yet instructively sophisticated account of how Davidsonians can accommodate the massive context sensitivity of language use. Good stuff." Paul Pietroski, University of Maryland
"This is a book of considerable importance, which deals with a topic currently at the center of research in the philosophy of language. As a result, Insensitive Semantics has been and will continue to be widely discussed ...This book pushes the discussion of context-sensitivity forward in new and useful directions. Read it and learn from it." Journal of Linguistics
