dc.description.abstract The author concentrates on the methodological aspects of a theory of language in which one could explain all basic problems related to natural language, especially such as the phenomenon of meaning, language acquisition, knowledge of language, the relation between natural language and the language of thought etc. She believes we should develop Wittgensteinian approach where the category of use plays the central role in explaining meaning. We should also reject double aspect theories of meaning and treat language as a natural phenomenon functioning in our daily life, and ontologically as an abstract object which has to be examined. Additionally, she claims that we should elaborate the ideas which are the underlying reasons for the three projects in philosophy: minimalism, naturalism and pragmatism. The author argues in favor of some given, previously elaborated and specified theses which she derives from each of them.
