Dissertationsprojekt

Expressing Myself: Disavowals and the Mind (working title)

The dissertation project aims to develop an expressivist semantics for the negation of avowals. So far, expressivist theories (Wittgenstein 1953, Bar-On 2004, 2015; Finkelstein 2003; Freitag 2014, 2018a/b) have focused on positive avowals. But negated avowals (disavowals), e.g. 'I don't hope that it is raining', pose, or seem to pose, a serious problem to avowal expressivism. It is unclear what the utterance of a negated avowal is supposed to express - how can one express the absence of a mental state? The purpose of the dissertation is to examine negated avowals. I will tentatively claim that, in spite of the mentioned problem, they can receive an expressive interpretation. I propose that disavowals constitute cases of expressive negation. Thus, we can avoid a descriptivist backlash. An expressive interpretation of disavowals will, furthermore, contribute to a new understanding of various philosophical problems such as Moore's paradox and suspension of belief
