What does it take to refer? a reply to Bojadziev
Abstract:Bojadziev has taken issue with my distinction between strong and weak self-reference, in saying that it is reference in general and not simply self-reference, that either is strong or weak. I agree completely. Here I clarify how I intend those notions and why I think that the strong case of self-reference is worthy of special attention. In short, I argue that all forms of referring involve a kind of self-referring.
