pragmatic contradiction

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

An inconsistency arising because of an implicature, or one of the normal implications of saying something, rather than because of the content of what is said. ‘p but I do not believe that p’ is the standard example (see Moore's paradox). Varieties of the peritrope hope to catch relativists in some kind of pragmatic contradiction.

Subjects: Philosophy.
