Final Call for Papers

Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference 2010
Department of Philosophy
Universiteit van Amsterdam
30 September - 2 October 2010

Theme: Truth, Meaning, and Normativity

The 3rd Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference on 'Truth, Meaning, and
Normativity' is devoted to continue the discussions that were raised in the
previous two conferences, as well as to lay the ground for new ones.

We invite submissions from graduate researchers conducting novel philosophical
research into any of the three conference topics. We also encourage submissions
that inform the discussion about truth, meaning, and/or normativity by offering
a philosophical interpretation of results from other fields such as logic,
cognitive psychology and linguistics (including formal semantics and
sociolinguistics).

Areas of interest include but are not restricted to: formal theories of truth;
deflationism; vagueness; proof-theoretic versus truth-theoretic conceptions of
meaning; meaning as use; the semantics-pragmatics interface; compositionality;
criteria and evidence for evaluating competing theories of truth and/or
meaning; semantic normativity with respect to meaning, use, content, and
context; syntax and logical form.

Since the topics of truth, meaning, and normativity naturally feed into each
other, we also welcome contributions whose particular aim is to explore any of
the many intricate ways in which these notions relate to one another.
Submissions on the role that these notions have played, or play, in the broad
(analytic) tradition or, more specifically, within the linguistic turn are also
of interest to the conference.


Confirmed invited speakers

- Paul Egré (Paris)
- Jeroen Groenendijk (Amsterdam)
- Max Kölbel (Barcelona)
- Hannes Leitgeb (Bristol)
- Åsa Wikforss (Stockholm)
