9780199573004: Assertion: New Philosophical Essays

Assertion is a fundamental feature of language. This volume will be the place to look for anyone interested in current work on the topic. Philosophers of language and epistemologists join forces to elucidate what kind of speech act assertion is, particularly in light of relativist views of truth, and how assertion is governed by epistemic norms.

Jessica Brown is currently Arche Professor at the Arche Philosophical Research Centre at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. She has published extensively in epistemology and philosophy of mind, including her monograph, Anti-Individualism and Knowledge (MIT 2004).
Herman Cappelen is Arche Professor at the University of St Andrews and a research director at CSMN, at the University of Oslo. He is the author of three books: Insensitive Semantics (Blackwell, 2004), Language Turned on Itself (OUP 2007), and Relativism and Monadic Truth (OUP 2009). He is co-author of The Inessential Indexical, with Josh Dever (OUP, 2013).

Review:

Brown and Cappelen offer an excellent introduction which lays out the dialectical space, and which explains the division of papers into those which address the nature of assertion ... and those which concern 'epistemic norms of assertion'. ... Brown and Cappelen's volume is rich and fascinating reading, and should be of interest for all contemporary philosophers of language and epistemologists. * Allan Hazlett, Mind * valuable reading for anyone interested in speech acts in general and assertion in particular. Each contribution raises a lot of interesting and original questions. In addition to this, the volume reads as a highly homogenous whole, with common threads running across several papers. * Mikhail Kissine, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews * Brown and Cappelen's volume is rich and fascinating reading, and should be of interest for all contemporary philosophers of language and epistemologists. * Allan Hazlett, Robin McKenna, and Joey Pollock, Mind * this book is really a terrific contribution to the field and both authors and editors are to be commended for breaking new ground on this very important speech act. The collection is full of fresh, interesting insights and clear arguments that will provide many a philosopher with a deeply explored dialectic to work within. * Adam Senett, Analysis *
