Norms and negation: A problem for Gibbard's logic

Philosophical Quarterly 51 (202):60-75 (2001)
A difficulty is exposed in Allan Gibbard's solution to the embedding/Frege-Geach problem, namely that the difference between refusing to accept a normative judgement and accepting its negation is ignored. This is shown to undermine the whole solution.
