Truth and Context Change
LanCog, University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal and CSMN, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway.
2014 (English)In: Journal of Philosophical Logic, ISSN 0022-3611, E-ISSN 1573-0433, Vol. 43, no 1, 33-51 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Some dynamic semantic theories include an attempt to derive truth-conditional meaning from context change potential. This implies defining truth in terms of context change. Focusing on presuppositions and epistemic modals, this paper points out some problems with how this project has been carried out. It then suggests a way of overcoming these problems. This involves appealing to a richer notion of context than the one found in standard dynamic systems.
