I offer some brief remarks in reply to comments and criticisms of my earlier work on logical consequence
and logical constants. I concentrate on criticisms, especially García-Carpintero’s charge that my views make no room for modal intuitions about logical consequence, and Sher’s attempted rebuttal of my critique of her theory of logical constants. I show that García-Carpintero’s charge is based on misunderstandings, and that Sher’s attempted rebuttal actually reveals new problems for her theory.
