This chapter starts by discussing the origins of this book, which began at a conference on assertion held at the Arché Philosophical Research Centre, St Andrews, Scotland in June 2007. The aim of this book (and the conference) was to bring together new work on assertion by leading epistemologists and philosophers of language. Although the topic of assertion is central to both these areas, work between them is insufficiently integrated. This book aims to force integration.

Keywords:   assertion, epistemologists, philosophy of language to philosophy, integration
