Research in the L&M group focuses on philosophical issues about language and mind. We have a broad range of interests; in recent semesters, we have discussed topics including the foundations of formal semantic theory, slurs and pejoratives, the distinction between semantics and pragmatics, context-sensitivity, the experience of time, mental representation in humans and animals, the relation between consciousness and personal identity, and more.
Language and Mind group meets on a weekly basis to discuss a variety of issues in philosophy of language and/or philosophy of mind. These seminars take place this semester every Tuesday from 12:00 – 14:00. For details of the current program and venue see the Arché Weekly Calendar.
