Retrouvez le programme des prochaines séances du séminaire "Compact Seminar: Act-Based Meaning" de Friederike Moltmann.
This compact seminar will be in connection with the workshop on Twardowski, january 24-25, 2014 (IHPST) and the colloquium 'The Distinction between Actions and Products: Linguistic Applications and Philosophical Motivations' (TBC), mai 2014.
In response to a range of serious problems for the notion of an abstract proposition, a number of philosophers (such as Scott Soames and Peter Hanks) have developed act-based conceptions of propositional content. This seminar will give an overview of act-based approaches to propositional content and outline a new version of it based on the distinction between actions and products due to Twardowski. It will discuss new linguistic applications of that approach, in particular to presuppositions and unbound anaphora and to quotation.
