Title: Andy Egan
"Expressivism, Truth-Conditions, and the Project of Semantics"

There is a "production-first" way of thinking about the project of  
semantics - in particular, about what it is for a sentence to have  
truth-conditions - that makes expressivism seem at least very puzzling, and  
more likely impossible or incoherent. I'll look at an  
anti-expressivistargument from Frank Jackson and Phillip Pettit that  
presupposes this production-first way of thinking about semantics, and at  
David Lewis's articulation of a production-first picture of the project of  
semantics in "Languages and Language". I then argue that the choice of a  
production-first framework is unforced, and that adopting a different  
picture (either context-first or acceptance-first) allows us to recognize  
the possibility of a coherent expressivism.
