Arguments for the Davidsonian Theory

  • Fred Landman
Part of the Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy book series (SLAP, volume 76)


In this lecture, I will introduce the (neo)-Davidsonian theory of event arguments, and discuss several of the arguments that Terry Parsons gives in Parsons 1990 in favor of this theory. I will discuss some details of Parsons’ own proposal in the next lecture. There too, I will present a particular version of the neo-Davidsonian theory, that I will build on in later lectures on plurality.
