The paper discusses Marcus’s formulation of the principle of substitutivity. She relied on a notion of logical
form in which certain problematic kinds of context are analyzed away. I defend a variant formulation
of the principle in which the problematic contexts are accommodated in their own right.

El artículo discute la formulación de Marcus del principio de sustituibilidad. Se apoyó en una noción de
forma lógica en la que el análisis elimina algunos tipos problemáticos de contexto. Defiendo una formulación
variante del principio en la cual los contextos problemáticos se acomodan por derecho propio.
