    Coreference & Confusion 
    In my thesis (reviewed here), I worried about how confused one could be and still make a credible inference. Here's a newer account, and some thoughts about alternative approaches (first, on Kit Fine's Semantic Relationism, and second, on Ruth Millikan's anti-Fregeanism).

    Matters Epistemic

    My book is finally out... time to get excited about all things Austinian!
