Linguistic Field(s): Philosophy of Language; Semantics

Meeting Description:

Les colloques Res per Nomen s’intéressent au problème de la référence du point de vue de la linguistique et de la philosophie. Cette fois-ci, il portera sur les diverses théories du sens et de la référence.

Les Théories du Sens et de la Référence. Hommage à Georges Kleiber

Le colloque Res per Nomen 4 entend traiter des diverses théories du sens et dela référence. La tradition philosophique est très riche en théories dans ces deux domaines ; en linguistique, en revanche, la référence a été explicitement écartée de la réflexion linguistique par les pères fondateurs de la linguistique moderne, Saussure et Bloomfield, non parce qu’ils pensaient qu’elle n’y avait pas sa place, mais parce qu’ils estimaient que la linguistique devait d’abord, avant d’aborder la référence, se concentrer sur la langue et l’étudier sous l’angle d’un système de signes. En France, la question de la référence en langue a été réintroduite dans la réflexion linguistique par Georges Kleiber à partir des années 80. Res per nomen 4 voudrait être l’occasion de faire un bilan de son apport à la compréhension du langage, et notamment en ce qui concerne son concept-clé, la dénomination.

Res per Nomen conferences look into the question of reference from the point of view of both Linguistics and Philosophy. This time we shall more specifically study the various theories of sense and reference.

Sense and Reference. A Tribute to Georges Kleiber

Res-per-nomen 4 will look into the many theories of sense and reference. While the philosophical tradition is very rich in such theories, in linguistics, however, reference was explicitly eschewed by the founding fathers of modern linguistics, Saussure and Bloomfield, not because they thought reference did not have its rightful place in the study of language, but because they found it more pressing to concentrate on language as a system of signs. In France, Reference was reintroduced into linguistics by Georges Kleiber over the last three decades. Res per nomen 4 would like to take stock of his contribution to our understanding of language, particularly with regard to one of his key concepts: names and the naming process (‘dénomination’ in French).
