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.
