Abstract
The supervaluationist theory of vagueness is committed to a particular notion of logical consequence known as global validity. According to a recent objection, this notion of consequence is more problematic than is usually thought since i) it bears a commitment to some sort of bizarre inferences, ii) this commitment threatens the internal coherence of the theory and iii) we might find counterexamples to classically valid pat- terns of inference even in the absence of a definitely-operator (or similar device). As a consequence, the supervaluationist theory itself is in trou- ble. This paper discusses the objection.
