Abstract [en]

This paper is concerned with Sir Peter Strawson-s critical discussion of Paul Grice-s defence of the material implication analysis of conditionals. It argues that although Strawson-s own -consequentialist- suggestion concerning the meaning of conditionals cannot be correct, a related and radically contextualist account is able to both account for the phenomena that motivated Strawson-s consequentialism, and to undermine the material implication analysis by providing a simpler account of the processes that we go through when interpreting conditionals.
