    Modality, normativity, and intentionality
    Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 63 (3): 611-23. 2001.
    A striking feature of the contemporary philosophical scene is the flourishing of a number of research programs aimed in one way or another at making intentional soup out of nonintentional bones—more carefully, specifying in a resolutely nonintentional, nonsemantic vocabulary, sufficient conditions for states of an organism or other system to qualify as contentful representations. This is a movement with a number of players, but for my purposes here, the work of Dretske, Fodor, and Millikan can s…Read more

    Knowledge and the Social Articulation of the Space of ReasonsKnowledge and the Internal (review)
    with John McDowell
    Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 55 (4): 895. 1995.
    In “Knowledge and the Internal” John McDowell presents a deep and interesting argument. I think everything he says is true and important. Still, there are a number of points that bear expanding on in order to be properly understood. So I want to say something about his point of departure: the idea of standings in the space of reasons. And I want to fill in further the picture at which he finally arrives, by saying how I think we ought to understand knowledge as a standing in the space of reasons…Read more

    Assertion and Conditionals
    Philosophical Review 96 (4): 579. 1987.
  • Between Saying and Doing aims to reconcile pragmatism with analytic philosophy. It investigates the relations between the meaning of linguistic expressions and their use. Giving due weight both to what one has to do in order to count as saying various things and to what one needs to say in order to specify those doings, makes it possible to shed new light on the relations between semantics and pragmatics. Among the vocabularies whose interrelated use and meaning are considered are: logical, inde…Read more
