In "Literal meaning", Franfois Recanati argues for contextualism on utterance meaning and content, against literalism, indexicalism and syncretic views. A widely held assumption among participants in the debate is the thesis I call 'monopropositionalism,' that is, the view that the utterance of a non-ambiguous sentence is associated with one and only one proposition (implicatures apart).The only position apparently incompatible with monopropositionalism seems to be the syncretic view, a view that Recanati rejects. However, he doesn't embrace monopropositionalism, as it is clear in his later book, "Perspectival thought".
