Fictional Reports

Pål Fjeldvig Antonsen

ABSTRACT

This paper outlines a bicontextual account of fictional reports. A fictional report is a report on something that happens in a fiction, and a bicontextual account is an account that relativizes truth to two contexts. The proposal is motivated by two considerations. First, it explains the intuitive truth conditions of fictional reports without postulating hidden fiction operators. Second, it handles the problem of indexicals in fictional reports better than the standard accounts.

KEYWORDS: Fictional reports, Truth in fiction, Indexicality, Bicontextualism, Context of imagination
