Being about choices between various possible practical states of affairs, debates about policy necessarily involve contestable—and often contested—issues of values and meaning. This paper explores some of the obstacles that undermine the quality of debate about policy. It takes ‘higher education’ [HE] and ‘further education’ [FE] as convenient examples. It makes no attempt to examine the details of UK tertiary education policy. It draws from two streams: philosophy of mind, acknowledging its psychological turn; and philosophy of language.
