TITLE: 'Disagreement in Attitude'
ABSTRACT: In this talk, I explore the notion of "disagreement in 
attitude", both in its use by contextualists in recent debates over the 
semantics of perspectival expressions (predicates of taste, aesthetic 
adjectives, moral terms, epistemic vocabulary etc.) and as proposed by 
early expressivists. I present the initial proposal by C.L. Steveson and 
some criticisms and reformulations of it found in the literature. I then 
raise my own concerns in connection to its use by contemporary 
contextualists and expressivists to account for the problem posed by the 
phenomenon of faultless disagreement.
