Everything he said/Strawson/Cohen: E.g. - what the policeman said is true - here "true" is not needed to make a statement - with that the paradoxes disappear - solution: mere presupposition that a statement was made - if we would make no statements with that, paradoxes would ever disappear - CohenVsStrawson: a judge could take this as evidence of the character of the policemen - but it is not.
Horwich I 216
Everything he said/Cohen: E.g. - for all p. if the police officer claims that p, then p - "here paradoxes may again arise" - analog to the truth paradox - paradox/logical form/Cohen: can occur when in (p):(x).f(p.x)>. ~ p. this expression can occur as a whole as the value of p._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
