“What are we to accept, and what are we to reject, when saving truth from paradox?” Philosophical Studies 147:3 (2010) 433–443.
In this article, I praise Hartry Field’s fine book Saving Truth From Paradox (Oxford University Press, 2008). I also show that his account of properties is threatened by a paradox, and I explain how we can only avoid this paradox by coming to a clearer understanding the connections between accepting and rejecting (or assertion and denial) and the identity conditions for properties.
