  1. Rules, Intentions and Social Behavior: A Reassessment of Peter Winch.Jordi Fairhurst - 2019 - Journal for General Philosophy of Science / Zeitschrift für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 50 (4):429-445.

  • On the Art of Being Wrong: An Essay on the Dialectic of Errors.Sverre Wide - 2009 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 43 (4):573-588.

In order to gain a deeper understanding of mistakes (and to understand a deeper kind of mistake), it is argued that communicative aspects have to be taken into account. This is done in the theory of communicative (...)
