Settling a Question book
Was J. L. Austin a disjunctivist? I attempt to make some progress in settling the question by articulating some central aspects of some contemporary forms of disjunctivism and indicating some ways in which those aspects are foreshadowed in Austin’s work. I suggest that, although Austin failed clearly to articulate or defend a version of these contemporary forms of disjunctivism, his work was distinctively hospitable to their articulation and defence.
