Abstract

In their “DEKI, Denotation, and the Fortuitous Misuse of Maps” Jared Millson and Mark Risjord take the DEKI account to task for being unable to “distinguish justified
surrogative inferences from unjustified ones”, which is problem because an analysis of representation “must block unjustified surrogative inferences” (p. 5). This, they say, means that DEKI fails to meet our own Surrogative Reasoning Condition. In this note we respond to this criticism and defend our the DEKI account.
