Metaphors and Martinis: a response to Jessica Keiser
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies.
2017 (English)In: Philosophical Studies, ISSN 0031-8116, E-ISSN 1573-0883, Vol. 174, no 4, 853-859 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This note responds to criticism put forth by Jessica Keiser against a theory of lying as Stalnakerian assertion. According to this account, to lie is to say something one believes to be false and thereby propose that it become common ground. Keiser objects that this view wrongly counts particular kinds of non-literal speech as instances of lying. In particular, Keiser argues that the view invariably counts metaphors and certain uses of definite descriptions as lies. It is argued here that both these claims are false.
