Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the prospects for explaining away anti-substitution intuitions as due to conversational implicatures. It does this by exploring existing accounts, but also by considering alternative possible accounts. It argues that these accounts all fail for the same reasons as those considered in Chapter 1: The Enlightenment Problem and The Aspect Problem.

Keywords: simple sentences; implicatures; Enlightenment Problem; Aspect Problem
