Yet the semantic commitments of expressivism are nonetheless poorly understood and feature no longer been very a long way built. As argued inside, expressivists haven't but even controlled to unravel the 'negation challenge' - to give an explanation for why atomic normative sentences are inconsistent with their negations. for that reason, it truly is faraway from transparent that expressivism even might be real, not to mention even if it is.
Being For seeks to judge the semantic commitments of expressivism, by way of exhibiting how an expressivist semantics might paintings, what it could do, and what sort of assumptions will be required, to ensure that it to do it. construction on a hugely basic knowing of the elemental rules of expressivism, it argues that expressivists can remedy the negation challenge - yet in basic terms in a single form of manner. It indicates how this perception paves the way in which for an explanatorily strong, optimistic expressivist semantics,
which solves a lot of what were taken to be the inner most difficulties for expressivism. however it additionally argues that no account with those benefits could be generalized to accommodate structures like stressful, modals, or binary quantifiers.
