 Anaphora, Logophoricity, and Quasi-Indexicality

Focuses on ‘I’-thoughts and the way we attribute them. It defends the thesis that the only way one can capture an ‘I’-thought in an attribution is via the quasi-indicator ‘s/he (her/himself)’: ‘Jane said that she (herself) is rich’ represents Jane saying, ‘I am rich’. It is shown how quasi-indicators should be understood along with logophoric pronouns.

Keywords: acceptance; anaphora; attribution; coindexation; de se; logophoric pronouns; quasi-indicators
