This chapter engages with the second version of epistemic expressivism, the so-called non-traditional epistemic expressivism. This view is distinguished from traditional expressivism inasmuch as it holds that epistemic discourse is assertoric, that there are epistemic truths, and that there are epistemic facts — albeit in deflationary senses of these terms. After having explicated what it is for there to be deflationary truths and facts, the chapter argues that non-traditional epistemic expressivism is vulnerable to serious objections. These objections charge that for all its sophistication, non-traditional epistemic expressivism is not much more plausible than its traditional cousin.

Keywords:   actualism, non-traditional epistemic expressivism, epistemic truths, epistemic facts, deflationism, quasi-facts, quasi-propositions, representation, truth
