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.
