Meeting Description:

Semantics and Philosophy in Europe 4
26 September - 1 October, 2011
Ruhr University Bochum, Germany

It is with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming Semantics and Philosophy in Europe 4 conference. The conference will feature expert tutorials, symposia, roundtables, and a colloquium on the following topics:

A) The Semantics and Pragmatics of Quotation
B) The Semantics of Action Sentences
C) The Semantics and Epistemology of Mental State Ascriptions

The purpose of the SPE workshops is to enhance the dialogue between linguists and philosophers and to provide a new forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and the related areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, logic, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, epistemology) . SPE takes place annually in different European cities. The previous meetings took place in Paris (SPE1, 2008), London (SPE2, 2009), and Paris (SPE3, 2010).
