Entre objectivité et subjectivité : il est évident que (p)

Abstract : Between objectivity and subjectivity : il est évident que (p) In contemporary French, il est évident que p expresses a modality with meta-predicate status (Gosselin 2010). From the perspective of instructional semantics, we show that this impersonal form indicates neither the objectivity (which is true regardless of any subject) nor the collective subjectivity (which is true for most) but an intersubjectivity (which is true for any subject). Because of this intersubjective value, il est évident que not only intensifies the speaker's commitment but systematically indicates the stabilization of the judgment whether the judgment is a priori or based on a further examination of the situation (a priori / à y regarder de plus près, il est évident que p)
