Abstract

In this paper we analyze the Strawson’s notion of presupposition proposed in his book Introduction to Logical Theory. Strawsonian notion of presupposition is dependent on the notion of logical entailment. We make use of the theory of logical consequence operation as a general framework to show that it is impossible to find a logical consequence operation which mirrors the philosophical intuitions of the Strawson’s notions of presupposition. The aim of this paper is to present in details the philosophical backgrounds of the formal analysis presented in the author’s paper “Strawsonian presuppositions and logical entailment”.
