Contextualism and the use-mention distinction


Riegelnik, Stefan (2011). Contextualism and the use-mention distinction. Lodz Papers in Pragmatics, 7(2):281-290.

Abstract

The use-mention distinction is considered as a fundamental concept in the philosophy of language. So it goes without doubt that a comprehensive theory of language has to account for this distinction. In this paper I explore what it means to account for such a distinction and I argue that the main ideas of contextualist theories of language are in conflict with the distinction in question.
