Sanford C. Goldberg offers a singular account of the speech act of statement. He defends the view that this kind of speech act is answerable to a constitutive norm—the norm of statement. The speculation that statement is answerable to a robustly epistemic norm is uniquely suited for clarify assertion's philosophical significance—its connections to different philosophically attention-grabbing subject matters. those contain themes in epistemology (testimony and testimonial knowledge;
epistemic authority; disagreement), the philosophy of brain (belief; the speculation of psychological content), the philosophy of language (norms of language; the tactic of interpretation; the idea of linguistic content), ethics (the ethics of trust; what we owe to one another as information-seeking creatures), and
other issues which go beyond any subcategory (anonymity; belief; the department of epistemic hard work; Moorean paradoxicality). Goldberg goals to convey out those connections with no assuming whatever in regards to the specific content material of assertion's norm, past relating to it as robustly epistemic. within the final element of the ebook, notwithstanding, he proposes that we do top to determine the norm's epistemic commonplace as set in a context-sensitive type. After motivating this idea through attract Grice's Cooperative
Principle and spelling it out by way of what's jointly believed within the speech context, Goldberg concludes by way of noting how this type of context-sensitivity will be made to sq. with assertion's philosophical significance.
