|Paratactic analysis, philosophy: the attempt to analyze a compound sentence by juxtaposing the complete sentences derived from it. E.g. the earth rotates. Galileo said that. With this, problems with the attribution of propositional attitudes or indirect speech should be avoided. See also propositions, propositional attitudes, quotation, opacity, all that he said is true._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
Paratactic analysis/Davidson: 1. focuses on Tokenings, not on types.
2. an exposed sentence tokening should stand in relation to the one that is attributed.
3. essential relation of "equal speech" - problem: the substitution in the range of "that" does not preserve the truth value of the entire attribution. - Solution: the sentence-tokening located within, is not part of the actual attribution. - BrandomVsDavidson: the relation between the two Tokenings should be an anaphor and not demonstrative. - e.g. Galileo said (something in his mouth that commited him on that, what an assertive utterance of the following in my mouth would now commit me to)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
