A defense of QUD reasons contextualism

Bryan R. Weaver, Kevin Scharp

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article, we defend the semantic theory, Question Under Discussion (QUD) Contextualism about Reasons that we develop in our monograph Semantics for Reasons against a series of objections that focus on whether our semantics can deliver predictions for some common examples, how we defend the semantic theory, and how we assess it compared to its competitors.
