Blind Rule-Following

Blind Rule-Following

(p.27) 1 Blind Rule-Following
Mind, Meaning, and Knowledge

Paul A. Boghossian

Oxford University Press

In this chapter a new problem about rule-following is outlined, one that is distinct both from Kripke’s and Wright’s versions of the problem. This new problem cannot be correctly responsed to, as Kripke’s can, by invoking Wright’s Intentional Account of rule-following. The upshot might be called, following Kant, an antinomy of pure reason: we both must — and cannot — make sense of someone’s following a rule. The chapter explores various ways out of this antinomy without here endorsing any of them.

Keywords:   rules, rule-following, intentionality, dispositions, Wright, Kripke, Wittgenstein, paradox
