Published: 01 January 2016
...Andreas Stokke This essay argues that the distinction between lying and misleading while not lying is sensitive to discourse structure. It shows that whether an utterance is a lie or is merely misleading sometimes depends on the topic of conversation, represented by so-called questions under...

... disappointingly incomplete. 1. Westphal, for reasons he does not explain, prefers to use the older and somewhat misleading English edition of this work, Kierkegaard 1985 . 2. I prefer this translation of the Danish “Samtidighed” and use it throughout my translation of Kierkegaard's...

... continue to risk misleading the audience one was addressing at the time of the assertion.

..., for exam- ple, “transcendental idealism.” Alas, according to Collins, Kant’s own tenden- cy to refer to his philosophy as “transcendental idealism” is quite unfortunate and quite misleading. It is misleading because “it suggests that Kant claims that the domain of objects is just a domain of...

... ‘purpose’ and ‘pur- posiveness’) is dealt with in Solomonic fashion by using ‘end’ for Zweck and ‘purposiveness’ for Zweckmäßigkeit.

... think of a lot of people who are willing to sign up for (3-a) without being willing to sign up for (3-b), and I'm not so sure that when they do, it's because (3-b) is a true statement bearing the misleading quantity implicature that (roughly) the only way of being a normally politically enfranchised...

... the present method is an improvement on that score. Finally, the authors sometimes offer examples that can be misleading or puzzling. When explaining Berkeley's discussion of the laws of nature in part 1, section 30, the authors give the example of a hat being tossed on the floor. They tell us...

Where Aristotle himself is cryptic or seems to be on the wrong track, Curzer makes his own suggestions, and he treats Aristotle as a participant in contemporary discussion. It would be correct but misleading to say that Curzer...
