International Multidisciplinary Colloquium: Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science
December 20-21, 2012
December 18-19, 2012: Tutorial
The colloquium will be preceded by a two day-tutorial on the mass-count distinction.
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.
