The Ross Paradox as Evidence for the Reality of Semantical Games

Part of the Synthese language library book series (SLAP, volume 5)

In a number of earlier writings, I have outlined what may be called a game-theoretical semantics. This semantics can be applied both to formal (but interpreted) first-order languages, with or without modalities, and to certain fragments of English. The strategy on which this semantics is based is to associate with each sentence S under consideration a two-person game G(S) by reference to which the basic semantical attributes of S can be defined.
