Combat d'incerteses (1989),Dit o fet (1992) i Passar comptes (2012) són els tres volums, entre el dietari i les memòries, en què Oriol Bohigas ha desgranat la seva experiència i comentari de l'actualitat al llarg dels anys. Amb l'aparença formal de dietaris, els llibres de Bohigas parteixen de l'apunt de l'actualitat, però sovint reculen a moments i experiències del passat. Així, dels dos primers llibres, escrits als anys vuitanta, Combat d'incerteses se centra en els anys d'infantesa i joventut, i Dit o fet, comprèn l'època de la maduresa. Passar comptes, escrit entre 2007 i el 2012, reprèn l'activitat memorialística de l'autor vint anys després. * Apleguem en un sol volum tots tres llibres, després d'una revisió de l'autor i confegint un únic índex de noms per a tots tres.

Pronominal Reference
Linguistic theory has seen a substantial shift in focus during the past decade. Whereas early research in generative grammar sought descriptive adequacy through the proliferation of transformational rules, recent efforts have concentrated on defining systems of principles that restrict the application of a greatly simplified sys- tem of rules of grammar. These principles, because of their broad application within a particular language, and their appearance in a wide range of languages under investigation, are claimed to reflect innate cognitive structures often termed universal grammar. Accompanying this new, and very interesting research in linguis- tic theory is an interest in certain aspects of the language acquisi- tion process that relate to the theoretical claims. As new insights allow us to hypothesize both more specifically and more plausibly about linguistic universals, the actual facts about linguistic develop- ment in young children become increasingly relevant as additional data on which to formulate and test new ideas. This book looks closely at a particular set of linguistic structures with respect to both linguistic theory and language development, exploring the relationship between the theoretical claims and the results of a series of language acquisition experiments. Although work of this sort is often called interdisciplinary, the issues addressed are clearly defined, although not all of them are answered. This book should be of particular interest to linguists, and to psychologists concerned with linguistic and cognitive development.

An MTA train operator reacts violently when he finds a noose hanging in his cab. He slugs the person he thinks was responsible. Subway supervisors call for a meeting of all involved at the Grand Central subway platform. The result is a confusing series of exchanges regarding who did what, various meanings for that particular event, and other racial, sexual, and historical transformations that occur without people changing their now incorrect understanding from what it was when first presented to them. But Rasheed and Manny eventually find common ground in their commitment to not allow the facade of improvement to obscure the evil that still remains behind it.

Fixing Reference
Imogen Dickie develops an account of aboutness-fixing for thoughts about ordinary objects, and of reference-fixing for the singular terms we use to express them. Extant discussions of this topic tread a weary path through descriptivist proposals, causalist alternatives, and attempts to combine the most attractive elements of each. The account developed here is a new beginning. It starts with two basic principles. The first connects aboutness and truth: a belief is about the object upon whose properties its truth or falsity depends. The second connects truth and justification: justification is truth conducive; in general and allowing exceptions, a subject whose beliefs are justified will be unlucky if they are not true, and not merely lucky if they are. These principles-one connecting aboutness and truth; the other truth and justification-combine to yield a third principle connecting aboutness and justification: a body of beliefs is about the object upon which its associated means of justification converges; the object whose properties a subject justifying beliefs in this way will be unlucky to get wrong and not merely luck to get right. The first part of the book proves a precise version of this principle. Its remaining chapters use the principle to explain how the relations to objects that enable us to think about them-perceptual attention; understanding of proper names; grasp of descriptions-do their aboutness-fixing and thought-enabling work. The book includes discussions of the nature of singular thought and the relation between thought and consciousness.
