Centered Content and Communication Workshop. Barcelona, 31 May - 2 June, 2012.
Centered Content and Communication Workshop
Barcelona, 31 May - 2 June 2012.
The topic of the workshop will include issues such as how to best understand the communication of centered content; what kinds of utterances, if any, involve centered/self-locating content? Should the communication of such content be handled at the level of semantics or at the level of pragmatics? What is the best framework for such information exchange? Can an account of centered content shed light on related issues in the philosophy of language such as epistemic modals, knowledge claims, and predicates of personal taste?
