El objetivo de este artículo es doble. Primero, analizar los desacuerdos estratégicos, es decir, aquellas situaciones en las que una de las partes usa una expresión que le permite reestructurar el debate y, de este modo, obtener alguna ventaja estratégica para hacer avanzar su agenda política. El trabajo examina este tipo de desacuerdos en un conte...
Chapter
This paper investigates the expressions speakers use to express disagreement in everyday taste discussions. I first show that the standard way of representing taste disagreements implies that speakers express their disagreement using instances of the following pattern: EMD + x is not φ, where EMD refers to an explicit mark of disagreement, x to an...

El objetivo de este trabajo es doble. Primero, explorar la tensión existente entre estas dos características de la retractación: por un lado, la peculiar dificultad que encontramos para retractarnos en contextos evaluativos; por otro lado, la enorme fuerza con la que se demanda una retractación en aquellos casos en los que se exige que alguien reti...

According to Cappelen (2012), analytic philosophers have traditionally used two arguments to defend the role of intuitions in philosophy. On the one hand, The Argument from Philosophical Practice claims that analytic philosophers rely on intuitions when defending their theories. On the other hand, The Argument from Intuition Talk contends that intu...

Abstract: Menas is a term that has attracted a great deal of attention on the political scene in Spain at present. Although the term had a neutral usage originally, being an acronym for unaccompanied foreign minors, it has recently evolved into a term with clear negative connotations. This article explores what kind of term menas is today. Specific...

El objetivo de este trabajo es defender el uso tanto de métodos cualitativos como de métodos cuantitativos en investigación en filosofía del lenguaje. Concretamente, defenderé que la mejor opción para llevar a cabo este tipo de investigación es usar métodos propios de la lingüística de corpus, pero aplicando también métodos cualitativos. Para ello,...

The relevance of cognitive penetration has been pointed out concerning three fields within philosophy: philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, and epistemology. This paper argues that this phenomenon is also relevant to the philosophy of language. First, I will defend that there are situations where ethical, social, or cultural rules can affect...

This paper defends the claim that the traditional Kantian division between two different types of judgments, judgments of personal preference (subjectively valid) and judgments of taste (intersubjectively valid), does not apply to some contexts in which metalinguistic negotiations take place. To begin, I first highlight some significant similaritie...

El presente trabajo tiene por objeto analizar la relación que existe entre este fenómeno y la polarización política, relación que a...
Article

In this paper, I will defend that there is an asymmetry between straightforwardly factual and non-straightforwardly factual disagreements (Field 2009) in terms of persistency and retraction, and that we can use what I will call coordination of contexts to explain these two asymmetries. To make my point I will focus on the kinematics of this type of...

En segundo lugar, mostrar cómo el contextualismo deíctico y el relativismo dan cuenta de dicho fenómeno, pero solo el segundo puede hacerlo y acomodar...

The aim of this paper is to defend the idea of polarization as impermeability, a sense of polarization that has been overlooked in the debate on political polarization. According to this sense of polarization, a person or group is polarized to the extent that it is impervious to the ideas or reasons of others. In this way, and contrary to the idea...

El objetivo de este trabajo es doble. Primero, distinguir tres sentidos en los que puede entenderse el término ‘relativismo’ en el debate acerca del significado de los predicados de gusto y examinar si las posiciones en el debate –contextualismo deíctico (Stanley 2000; Glanzberg 2007; Schaffer 2011), contextualismo no deíctico (Kölbel 2003; Laserso...

In The Nature of Truth: An Updated Approach to the Meaning of Truth Ascriptions, M. J. Frápolli presents a novel approach to the meaning of truth ascriptions, defending that this kind of expression should play an essential role in our understanding of the notion of truth.
