Assurance and Scanlon's theory of promises

Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 108 (1pt3):385-392 (2008)
I offer a reading of the first clause of T. M. Scanlon's principle of fidelity to assurances. A circularity problem is created by his way of differentiating promises from other assurances which comply with this principle. When the clause is read in the way here proposed, all assurances complying with the principle are promises, and so this problem no longer arises.
