|Meeting Description:||International Multidisciplinary Colloquium: Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science
December 20-21, 2012
Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS)
45 rue d’Ulm, 75005 Paris
It is our pleasure to announce the ‘Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science’ colloquium.
With the support of the Paris Diderot University, IHPST, IEC (Linguistics Department) and the ANR-DFG NOMINAL project.
Organizers: Alexandra Arapinis (IHPST), Friederike Moltmann (IHPST), Lucia Tovena (Paris Diderot University)
The colloquium will be preceded by a one-day tutorial on the mass/count distinction given by Friederike Moltmann (IHPST) and David Nicholas (IJN).
The aim of this colloquium is to provide a platform of exchange between linguists, philosophers and psychologists, working the different aspects of the mass/count distinction. Such a resolutely interdisciplinary approach is indeed necessary to fully apprehend the new questions that are presently arising in connection to the mass/count distinction. This multidisciplinary conference aspires to move this scientific debate forward, and contribute to the evolution of current methodology.
