Abstract

El debate entre la concepción descriptivista de los nombres propios y la teoría de la referencia directa concierne —principalmente— a esta cuestión: ¿es la función referencial de los nombres propios reducible mediante la función descriptiva y las funciones lógicas? Una tesis distintiva central de Kripke es lo que denominamos particularismo semántico modal: la función referencial es irreducible, incluso cuando los nombre propios aparecen en enunciados modales. Se presenta aquí una exégesis de las críticas de Kripke contra cierta interpretación metafórica de los mundos posibles (que los considera como lugares lejanos observados con telescopios) interpretándolas como elementos cruciales en su defensa del particularismo semántico modal.

The debate between the description theory of proper names and direct reference is —mainly— a debate on whether or not the referential function of proper names is reducible in terms of descriptive and logical functions. A central distinctive thesis in Kripke’s work is what I call modal semantic particularism: the referential function is irreducible even when proper names appear in modal contexts. I present an exegesis of Kripke’s comments against a certain metaphorical understanding of possible worlds (as distant countries discovered through telescopes) according to which these comments are crucial claims in his defense of modal semantic particularism.
