Overlaying Contexts of Interpretation

  • Henk Zeevat

Abstract

The paper proposes a theory of the context of interpretation that is always an information state with some extra structure. It departs from existing models in going for uniformity and in the way uniformity is achieved: the context is the local context together with as much of the embedding context as can be added without losing consistency. The paper gives a formalisation, shows a number of applications of this idea and expands on the connection between this idea of the context and intentional identity.
