De ray: On the boundaries of the davidsonian semantic programme

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Greg Ray (2014) believes he has discovered a crucial oversight in Donald Davidson's semantic programme, recognition of which paves the way for a novel approach to Davidsonian semantics. We disagree: Ray's novel approach involves a tacit appeal to pre-existing semantic knowledge which vitiates its interest as a development of the Davidsonian programme.
