Stephen Read: A Paradox of Signification

Lecture by Stephen Read (St Andrews), organized by the Department of Theoretical Philosophy

Ian Rumfitt has recently drawn our attention to a couple of paradoxes of signification, claiming that although Thomas Bradwardine's ''multiple-meanings'' account of truth and signification can solve the first of them, it cannot solve the second. Bradwardine's solution appears to...(continue...)

Workshop on Kant's Formula of Universal Law

The Formula of Universal Law is widely considered to be Immanuel Kant’s most important articulation of the principle of morality known as the Categorical Imperative. Yet it is thought, even among Kant scholars and Kantian moral theorists, to face insoluble philosophical problems. As a result, the Formula of Universal Law has fallen out of favor, and Kantian ethicists increasingly turn to the Formula of Humanity to complement it or replace it altogether. In this workshop, four new strategies for a philosophical ‘rehabilitation’ of the Formula of Universal Law will be presented and discussed.

Speakers: Oliver Sensen (Tulane), Sven Nyholm (Cologne), Jochen Bojanowski (Groningen), Pauline Kleingeld (Groningen).
