|Abstract||Wittgenstein advocated both expressivism about self-ascriptions of mental states and minimalism about truth. Since these are widely thought to be inconsistent doctrines, sympathetic interpreters ignore or discount one or the other of these strands in his thought. I argue that Wittgenstein's version of expressivism is consistent with his minimalism. Furthermore, when the reconciliation between expressivism and minimalism is made in the way envisioned by Wittgenstein, we acquire a straightforward account of our authoritative first person knowledge of mental states|
