The book entitled Language, Meaning and Interpretation: East and West, deals with various aspects of how the trio-concepts, language, meaning and interpretation, are entwined with each other. The problem of meaning is the fundamental issue of philosophy of language in general and linguistic philosophy in particular and it can be solved by proper understanding and interpreting of language. There are various interpretations of meaning, viz., phenomenological, atomistic, holistic, religious, aesthetics, cognitive, non-cognitive, and in each case interpretation of language plays its role. There are as many as twenty-five papers that appear as twenty-five Chapters where various dimensions of meaning and interpretation of language have been explored from Western as well as Indian perspectives. Therefore, readers particularly belonging to the area of philosophy of language, philosophy of science, philosophy of mind and consciousness will be benefitted from it.
