This paper is dedicated to viewpoints propositions (VPPs), a (lexically triggered) non-truth conditional component of sentences. A VPP introduced by a sentence denotes a Platonic (non necessarily embodied) viewpoint on the denotatum of this sentence. Unlike conventional implicatures, VPPs are not necessarily consciously processed by speakers and interpreters. The possibility that unconscious processing of VPPs during the utterance retroacts on thoughts is examined.
