By Sanford C. Goldberg

Sanford C. Goldberg provides a singular account of the speech act of statement. He defends the view that this sort of speech act is answerable to a constitutive norm—the norm of statement. The speculation that statement is answerable to a robustly epistemic norm is uniquely fitted to clarify assertion's philosophical significance—its connections to different philosophically fascinating themes. those comprise issues in epistemology (testimony and testimonial knowledge;
epistemic authority; disagreement), the philosophy of brain (belief; the speculation of psychological content), the philosophy of language (norms of language; the tactic of interpretation; the speculation of linguistic content), ethics (the ethics of trust; what we owe to one another as information-seeking creatures), and
other issues which go beyond any subcategory (anonymity; belief; the department of epistemic exertions; Moorean paradoxicality). Goldberg goals to carry out those connections with no assuming something concerning the special content material of assertion's norm, past relating to it as robustly epistemic. within the final component of the ebook, notwithstanding, he proposes that we do top to determine the norm's epistemic regular as set in a context-sensitive type. After motivating this concept by means of attract Grice's Cooperative
Principle and spelling it out when it comes to what's together believed within the speech context, Goldberg concludes by means of noting how this kind of context-sensitivity could be made to sq. with assertion's philosophical significance.
