A Consistent Reading of "Sylvan's Box"

Philosophical Quarterly 57 (229):667 - 673 (2007)
Abstract
I argue that Graham Priest's story 'Sylvan's Box' has an attractive consistent reading. Priest's hope that this story can be used as an example of a non-trivial 'essentially inconsistent' story is thus threatened. I then make some observations about the role 'Sylvan's Box' might play in a theory of unreliable narrators
