Schlenker’s local context work wins award

Congratulations to S&P author Philippe Schlenker, whose paper “Presuppositions and Local Contexts” was just declared one of last year’s ten best philosophy papers. The paper that won the award appeared in Mind, but it is kind of a reader’s digest version of a more technical article that originally appeared in S&P in 2009: “Local Contexts”. So, S&P also basks in the glory.
