    A Workshop and Inauguration of A Series

    FROM THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TO THE LOGICAL (AND BACK)

    (A Radical Contextualist Approach)

    The main objective of this workshop and of the Radical Contextualism series in general is to explore origins and consequences of (current brands of) contextualism (Travis, Récanati, Searle). Usually contextualism in the philosophy of language concerns the implications of pragmatic phenomena for semantics. We will focus instead on the implications of occasion-sensitivity for the structure of the thought of rational beings, and vice versa, i.e. the bearing of the thought of rational beings on the presence and function of occasion-sensitivity. We intend that work to extend to questions regarding the form and function of logic, the nature of objectivity, and the nature of philosophy.

    Contextualism and Epistemology

    The first workshop of the network will have Prof Michael Williams (Johns Hopkins - Baltimore) as guest. Michael Williams' work has been very influential in epistemology proposing a contextualist approach while at the same time opposing other contextualist epistemologists such as Keith De Rose.
