Comments: Is There Anything Non-Circumstantial?

In this paper I shall raise three questions concerning the problem itself and the way it is presented in Schnelle’s paper, as well as make two points somewhat more loosely associated with the problem and concerned with more general issues of philosophy of language. The general goal is to demonstrate that the problem in question is an inseparable part of a much more general framework amounting to a full-fledged semantic theory and, therefore, an attempt to investigate it in any partial, fragmentary, way seems to be rather arbitrary.
