What is communicative success?
2008 (English)In: Canadian journal of philosophy, ISSN 0045-5091, Vol. 38, no 1, 85-115 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The author presents a classical view of communicative success and defends it against modern views that compel a requirement of knowledge or reliability. He believes that there is no well-defined pre-theoretic concept of communicative success that is present as object of conceptual analysis. Moreover, he offers a theoretical argument for taking agreement in the mental context to be more basic than agreement in linguistic meaning. Lastly, he claims that non-compositional theories would be chosen by the charity principle because one can select more freely what meaning to assign to his sentences.
