Grice on Moore’s Paradox


This is a contribution to a symposium on Annalisa Coliva's book _The Varieties of Self-Knowledge_. I present her notion of a "commitment" and how it is used in her treatment of Moore paradoxical assertions and thoughts (e.g., "I believe that it is raining, but it is not;" "It is raining but I do not believe that it is"). The final section notes the points of convergence between her constitutivism about self-knowledge of commitments, and the constitutivism from my book _Self-Reflection for the Opaque Mind_.

  1. It is raining but X does not BELIEVE that it is.... What else could X do/feel about it that BELIEVE? It is raining but X does not THINK it so...? It is raining but X does not SENSE it so...? etc.
