A couple of posts ago, I expostulated about Field’s over-hasty rejection of what I called the no-proposition response to the Liar. As it happens I found myself this morning reading (in the welcome shade of some pines at the top of a deserted beach on New Providence, if you must know) Dorothy Grover’s ‘How Significant is the Liar?’, in the Beall/Armour-Garb collection Deflationism and Paradox. I am very much in sympathy with her general approach which is firmly in the no-proposition camp. Recommended, if you want to get the beginnings of a sense of how the position might be defended.
