Renewing Meaning

Stephen J Barker (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

I deal with the cognitive states expressed by de dicto logically complex sentences–those that are expressives, such as negations, disjunctions, universal noun phrase sentences, and adverbs of generality. I also articulate more clearly STA’s expressivism about semantic norms and its psychologism: the account of how sentences express cognitive states is integral to the semantics that STA gives of them.

Keywords:   commitment, conceptual role semantics, entailment, exclusion, logical complexity, logical constant, psychologism, semantic normative expressivism
