Description

A Problem for Bilateralism

Nils Kürbis (Bochum)



In bilateral logic formulas are signed by + and -, indicating the speech acts assertion and denial. I argue that making an assumption is also speech act. Speech acts cannot be embedded within other speech acts. Hence we cannot make sense of the notion of making an assumption in bilateral logic.



The Centre for Logic and Language hosts a regular seminar series - the Logic, Epistemology and Metaphysics Forum (LEM). The forum generally meets fortnightly in term time. and is supported by the ERC project Metacognition of Concepts (GA 681422).
