Reference and Non-Existence

Sixth Barcelona Workshop on Issues in the Theory of Reference

Barcelona, 17-19 June 2009


What are we saying when we use a name that doesn't refer? What are we talking about when we use a singular term in fiction?  Reference failure and reference in fiction are two distinct phenomena that have in common the apparent reference to things that do not exist.  For this edition of the BW we will encourage submissions discussing reference to the (apparently) non-existent.
