My last post today!

In a message dated 5/1/2014 9:53:15 A.M. Eastern  Daylight Time, 
donalmcevoyuk@xxxxxxxxxxx writes in "The Independent Moralist":  One of the 
influential readings of the problem of following a rule (introduced  by Fogelin 
and Kripke 1982) has been the interpretation, according to which  
Wittgenstein is here voicing a skeptical paradox and offering a skeptical  
That is to say, there are no facts that determine what counts as  following a 
rule, no real grounds for saying that someone is indeed following a  rule, 
and Wittgenstein accepts this skeptical challenge (by suggesting other  
conditions that might warrant our asserting that someone is following a rule).  
This reading has been challenged, in turn, by several interpretations (such 
as  Baker and Hacker 1984, McGinn1984, and Cavell 1990), while others have 
provided  additional, fresh perspectives (e.g., Diamond, “Rules: Looking in 
the Right  Place” in Phillips and Winch 1989, and several in Miller and Wright 
In  years to come this may all be corrected of course.

Since what originated this was THE INDEPENDENT's report of Keysar's words  
to Science Daily, I append below his (Keysar's) publications. And the next 
step  would be to doublecheck if we can get philosophical cross-references to 
Witters  (or Grice!) in the proceedings!
