In this paper I informally present Discourse Representation Theory (DRT) and assess its usefulness for contextualism. First I sketch DRT's analysis of nominal and temporal anafora, definite descriptions,proper names, universal statements, conditionals and negated statements. Next I discuss some philosophical consequences of DRT and consider whether analysis offered by this theory can be used in the debate between semantic minimalism and contextualism.doaj:c1a5ccb403534a14a0a690791aa75ad6 fatcat:mdtlteeeyva2peem7l4adzngum
