Assertion - new Philosophical Essays
Assertion: New Philosophical Essays (Oxford University Press, 2011) edited by Jessica Brown and Herman Cappelen.
Assertion is a fundamental feature of language.This volume will be the place to look for anyone interested in current work on the topic. Philosophers of language and epistemologists join forces to elucidate what kind of speech act assertion is, particularly in light of relativist views of truth, and how assertion is governed by epistemic norms.
