Semantic Accounts of Vagueness

In J. C. Beall (ed.), Liars and Heaps. Oxford University Press. pp. 106-27 (2003)
Abstract
Read as a comment on Crispin Wright's \"Vagueness: A Fifth Column Approach\", this paper defends a form of supervaluationism against Wright's criticisms. Along the way, however, it takes up the question what is really wrong with Epistemicism, how the appeal of the Sorities ought properly to be understood, and why Contextualist accounts of vagueness won't do.
