Abstract: Linguistically, sentences contain both Given information (what the listener is expected to know already) and New information (what the listener is not expected to know already). According to a proposed Given-New Strategy, the listener, in comprehending a sentence, first searches memory for antecedent information that matches the sentence's Given information; he then revises memory by attaching the New information to that antecedent. To provide evidence for this strategy, we presented subjects with pairs of sentences, where the first (the context sentence) provided a context for the second (the target sentence). The subjects were required to press a button when they felt they understood the target sentences. Consistnet with the proposed strategy, Experiment I showed that a target sentence with a definite noun phrase presupposing existence took less time to comprehend when its Given information had a direct antecedent in the context sentence than when it did not. Experiment II ruled out a repetition explanation for Experiment I, and Experiment III demonstrated the same phenomenon for target sentences containing the adverbs still, again, too , and either .

TL;DR: The way in which people's beliefs about the aetiology of their particular affliction (arthritis) need to be understood as part of a more comprehensive imaginative enterprise which is referred to as narrative reconstruction is demonstrated.
Abstract: In this paper I demonstrate the way in which people's beliefs about the aetiology of their particular affliction (arthritis) need to be understood as part of a more comprehensive imaginative enterprise which I refer to as narrative reconstruction. The intrinsically teleological form of this enterprise means that identified 'causes' represent only putative efficient connexions between the disease and antecedent factors but also narrative reference points between the individual and society in an unfolding process which has become profoundly disrupted. Through the presentation of case material taken from lengthy interviews I illustrate the way in which my question to the subjects about the cause of their disease: 'Why do you think you got arthritis?' was translated by them into a narrative reconstruction of their changing relationship to the world in which they live and the genesis of illness within it.

Abstract: The standard use of the propositional calculus ('P.C.’) in analyzing the validity of inferences involving conditionals leads to fallacies, and the problem is to determine where P.C. may be ‘safely’ used. An alternative analysis of criteria of reasonableness of inferences in terms of conditions of justification rather than truth of statements is proposed. It is argued, under certain restrictions, that P. C. may be safely used, except in inferences whose conclusions are conditionals whose antecedents are incompatible with the premises in the sense that if the antecedent became known, some of the previously asserted premises would have to be withdrawn.
