(p.225) 9 Attitudes and Epistemics
Expressing Our Attitudes

Mark Schroeder

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes up the question of whether epistemic modals are a more promising application for expressivist semantic theory than normative terms. Exportation and importation rules are introduced as a helpful way of thinking about the relationship between attitudes and the expressivist attitude dialectic. Forms of the problem of mixed disjunctions are developed both for a misguided interpretation of Allan Gibbard’s metaethical expressivism and for Seth Yalcin’s expressivism about epistemic expressions. The resulting discussion addresses a variety of issues about embedded epistemic terms, including the general validity of disjunction elimination, the commutativity of disjunction, and the treatment of these issues in dynamic semantics.

Keywords:   semantic theory, epistemic modals, dynamic semantics, expressivism, mixed disjunctions, expressivist attitude dialectic
