Show Summary Details


This chapter begins by exploring what would be needed to evade fully The Enlightenment Problem, arguing for the abandonment not only of EOI but also of some important variants of EOI. It then considers what is required to avoid The Aspect Problem. By the end of this chapter, it is clear that philosophers of language need to develop theories on which truth conditional intuitions may not be due to any proposition whose truth conditions match those indicated by the intuitions.

Keywords: expressed; implicated; Enlightenment Problem; Aspect Problem; truth conditions; intuitions; matching propositions
