An Analysis of the Weak Dynamics View: François Recanati's Two-Level Account

Main Article Content

Pailin Pinsumang


Recanati holds that dynamic thoughts involve two distinct types of files: fine-grained files based on a specific relation in a particular context and coarse-grained files based on multiple relations in the whole context. I argue that Recanati’s mental file account is a two-level account that is independent of each other. This account faces two problems. Firstly, it is in contradiction to the principle of compositionality, and secondly, there is a gap between the two types of files, which implies that coarse-grained files do not exist.
