Seana Shiffrin's Speech Matters is a remarkably rich, original, and insightful work, casting new and sometimes surprising light on a wide range of issues in law and morality.

1. Seana Shiffrin, Speech Matters: On Lying, Morality, and the Law (2014). Numbers in parentheses in the text refer to pages in this book.

2. She writes, “the criminal's aim to use the information as a means to commit a criminal act renders the context [one in which the requirement of truthfulness about one's beliefs is] justifiably suspended between the two of you with respect to that information.” (35)

3. This is an abbreviated version of the statement Shiffrin gives on pp. 86–88. Passages in square brackets are my summaries of longer ones in that statement.
