Apr 2010: Time and Tense Workshop
The PIT seminar focuses on issues from three projects run in collaboration with CSMN at the University of Oslo.
Propositions: This project investigates the metaphysics of propositions and the role of propositions in semantics, the philosophy of mind, and the theory of agency.
Indexicality in Language and Thought: This project addresses issues about the nature of indexicality both in language and thought. Some of the key questions are these:
- Do indexicals play a distinctive role in action explanation or rationalization?
- Do indexicals play a distinctive role in perception?
- Does indexical thought have a distinctive form of immunity to error?
Time and Tense: This project addresses a wide range of question concerning the interrelations between the semantics of tense and the metaphysics of time.
