Millikan is an amazing philosopher, and wonderful person to boot. Though she is well-known, she continues to be underrated, in my opinion.

Nick Maley

Millikan will, IMHO, one day come to be seen as the most important philosopher of the last 50 years. Sadly her work is still not widely known, and philosophy of language and mind are unfashionable at the moment. The problem is some people find her work 'difficult'. While she is invariably clear and rigorous, she is often working outside traditional philosophical ways of approaching the subject. So people find the conceptual shift disorienting.
