A measurement theoretic account of propositions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In the first section of this paper I review Measurement Theoretic Semantics - an approach to formal semantics modeled after the application of numbers in measurement, e.g., of length. In the second section it is argued that the measurement theoretic approach to semantics yields a novel, useful conception of propositions. In the third section the measurement theoretic view of propositions is compared with major other accounts of propositional content.
