Avowals: Expression, security, and knowledge: Reply to Matthew Boyle, David Rosenthal, and Maura Tumulty [Book Review]
Acta Analytica 25 (1):47-63 (2010)
In my reply to Boyle, Rosenthal, and Tumulty, I revisit my view of avowals’ security as a matter of a special immunity to error, their character as intentional expressive acts that employ self-ascriptive vehicles (without being grounded in self-beliefs), Moore’s paradox, the idea of expressing as contrasting with reporting and its connection to showing one’s mental state, and the ‘performance equivalence’ between avowals and other expressive acts.
