MARCHESAN, Eduardo. SOBRE A DETERMINAÇÃO CONTEXTUAL DO QUE É DITO. Kriterion [online]. 2020, vol.61, n.145, pp.173-194.  Epub 18-Mayo-2020. ISSN 1981-5336.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0100-512x2020n14509em.

François Recanati and Charles Travis have questioned the traditional distinction between semantics and pragmatics by criticizing Grice’s notion of what is said. They are both opposed to the idea that what is said can be read in terms of the conventional meaning of the uttered sentence. Both authors share the thesis according to which what is said does not necessarily put forward a propositional content equivalent to the literal meaning of the uttered sentence. My objective in this paper is to point out important differences between these two positions that are sometimes referred to indistinctively as Radical Contextualism. The paper is centered on the analysis of Recanati’s amendment of the notion of what is said. I first show how his reconstruction of this notion is motivated by the preservation of Grice’s attempt to explain communication in terms of the intention of the speaker. I then proceed to point out how his contextualism admits the idea of a minimal propositional content attached to the meaning of subsentential components. I conclude by arguing that Travis’ rejection of Grice’s whole framework goes against Recanati’s attempt to amend Grice’s notion of what is said.

Palabras clave : what is said; propositional content; intention; radical contextualism.
