    Na-Na, Na-Na, Boo-Boo, the Accuracy of Your Philosophical Beliefs is Doo-Doo.Mark Walker - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (2):1-49.
    The paper argues that adopting a form of skepticism, Skeptical-Dogmatism, that recommends disbelieving each philosophical position in many multi-proposition disputes- disputes where there are three or more contrary philosophical views-leads to a higher ratio of true to false beliefs than the ratio of the “average philosopher”. Hence, Skeptical-Dogmatists have more accurate beliefs than the average philosopher. As a corollary, most philosophers would improve the accuracy of their beliefs if they adopted Skeptical-Dogmatism.

    Linguistic Meaning Meets Linguistic Form in Action.Nara Miranda de Figueiredo & Elena Clare Cuffari - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):56-79.
    In this paper we suggest that Duffley’s sign-based semantics rests on two main claims: a methodological one and an ontological one. The methodological one is the analysis of corpora and the ontological one is the postulate of mental content. By adopting a linguistic enactivist perspective with a Wittgensteinian twist, we endorse Duffley’s methodological claim and suggest that a sign-based semantics doesn’t have to rely on mental content if it takes into account the conception of meaningful material engagement in cognitive archeology (...)

    Issues Concerning Linguistic Meaning and Form: Introductory Remarks.Nara Miranda de Figueiredo & Raquel Krempel - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):1-4.
    In this introduction we present Patrick Duffley's book Linguistic Meaning meets Linguistic Form, as well as the contributions that each scholar has brought into the debate on linguistic meaning and form. They deal with semantic and foundational issues regarding a sign-based approach to meaning.

    Reply to “Could Sign-Based Semantics and Embodied Semantics Benefit One Another?”.Patrick Duffley - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):145-154.
    Sign-based semantics and embodied semantics are argued to be mutually beneficial to one another. However, while the body does shape our cognitive activities to a great extent, this does not entail that cognition can be reduced to sensorimotor simulation, i.e that the mind can be reduced to the body. Language itself bears testimony to this, as the mind is construed in ordinary discourse as having the incredible capacity of being free to travel beyond the limits of present time and current (...)

    Reply to “Do Linguistic Meanings Meet Linguistic Form?”.Patrick Duffley - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):175-183.
    In reply to the claim that syntax is not taken into account in Linguistic Meaning Meets Linguistic Form, I show that local syntactic analysis has been implemented in the treatment of aspectual verbs and verbs of positive and negative recall, where the syntactic function of the -ing form as direct object of the main verb is put into relation with the main verb’s meaning as the basis for the inferences drawn concerning the temporal relation between the main verb’s event and (...)

    Reply to “Reflexivity, Role Conflicts, and the Meaning of English Self Pronouns”.Patrick Duffley - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):117-122.
    Stern’s Columbia School Theory contribution on English self-pronouns provides a wonderful illustration of the explanatory power of an approach that refuses to be taken in by a priori grammatical categories like reflexivity, which have the unfortunate consequence of giving the analyst the impression that he or she already knows all about the semantics of the form under study before looking at real usage, and attempts rather to uncover the semantic content of the linguistic sign -self based on careful observation and (...)

    Predictive Processing and the Semiological Principle: Commentary to Duffley.Guido Löhr & Michel Christian - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):5-20.
    The aim of this commentary is to underpin Duffley’s notion of a stable mental content that corresponds to the literal word meaning with a computationally plausible cognitive theory. Our approach is to investigate what these stable contents could be according to the so-called Predictive Processing architecture. We argue that recent advances in cognitive science can make at least two contributions to the debate. First, they can provide some underpinning of Duffley's ideas of a stable linguistic meaning associated with the sign. (...)

    Could Sign-Based Semantics and Embodied Semantics Benefit One Another?Cesar Fernando Meurer - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):123-144.
    I argue that Duffley’s sign-based semantics and embodied semantics may be mutually beneficial if we conceive them as a semantic theory and as a foundational theory, respectively. First, I describe embodied semantics as a research program that conceives the foundations of meaning in terms of embodied simulation. Afterwards, I draw attention to three points where Duffley’s semantics could find support in such a foundational theory. Finally, I suggest that two pressing challenges currently on the agenda of embodied semantics could be (...)

    Do Linguistic Meanings Meet Linguistic Form?Andrés Saab - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):155-174.
    In this brief note, I offer some considerations to the effect of arguing that Duffley's criticism to formal semantics is based on a dogma about the proper nature of the linguistic sing, and that, even when I agree with the general spirit of his realizational theory of meaning, an explicit theory of how syntax affects meanings realization is missing.

    Reflexivity, Role Conflicts, and the Meaning of English Self Pronouns.Nancy Stern - 2022 - Manuscrito 45 (1):90-116.
    This study offers an innovative, sign-based analysis of English self pronouns. While rejecting the traditional characterization of these forms as reflexive pronouns, the study borrows from the tradition by analyzing these forms as a kind of emphatic pronoun. The forms’ distribution can be explained by positing that they are semantic signals deployed by speakers to meet communicative goals. Speakers choose between self and simple pronouns when the additional meaning of self forms, INSISTENCE ON AN ENTITY, will steer hearers in particular (...)
