Michele Palmira (University of Barcelona) will give a talk on:

Assertions, Conjectures and Inquiries

Abstract. Several philosophers have recently discussed the existence of a sui generis doxastic propositional pro-attitude whereby individuals are rationally permitted to advocate their own views even in the face of systematic disagreement with their acknowledged epistemic peers. Against this backdrop, the paper investigates the following question: How do we verbally express a doxastic pro-attitude that p? Two answers are compared: one claiming that a doxastic pro-attitude that p is expressed via asserting p, the other claiming that it is expressed via conjecturing p. The paper argues against the former and in favour of the latter. By arguing for this thesis, the paper clarifies the nature of the target attitude and proposes a way of distinguishing between assertions and conjectures from a speech act-theoretic perspective.
