Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Quote/Disquotation: quotes are reproductions of verbal or written utterances made or found at a different time and / or at a different place. They may be put forward verbally or in writing. Problems arise for the interpretation of the original utterance if it contains linguistic elements that refer to persons or situations in the utterance context. See also indirect speech, quasi-quotation, intensions, propositions, opacity, two-dimensional semantics.

Def Disquotation principle: that B by the utterance of S says something true, A can only say if A could also say something that has the same meaning as S.
Its applicability boils down to the question of whether all sentences are on the same level, or whether you have to say "true for phlogiston theorists, but not true for me". Rorty: I would refuse such a formulation. Instead: "Do not stand in line with the beliefs and desires of .. but with mine."
