Truth and Speech Acts
Studies in the Philosophy of Language
Edited by Dirk Greimann, Geo Siegwart
Routledge – 2007 – 406 pages
Whereas the relationship between truth and propositional content has already been intensively investigated, there are only very few studies devoted to the task of illuminating the relationship between truth and illocutionary acts. This book fills that gap.
This innovative collection addresses such themes as:
Introduction Part 1: The Illocutionary Significance of the Concept of Truth Part 2: Truth and Assertion Part 3: The Normativity of Truth Part 4: Truth and Propositional Meaning
