CFP Truth: Deflationism and Beyond
More information at the website
Alghero (Italy) 23-24 September 2016, University of Sassari
* Deadline for abstracts submission: July 3rd, 2016
* Notification of acceptance of proposals: July 31st, 2016
* Convention: 23-24 September, 2016
Marian David, Pascal Engel, Paul Horwich, Paolo Leonardi, David Liggins, Jeremy Wyatt.
The last thirty years have witnessed a veritable explosion of the philosophical debate on truth. The touchpaper which lit the fuse for this was undoubtedly the Deflationist Renaissance (half a century after the seminal work of Ramsey) that took place starting from the Seventies. By arguing on the merits and shortcomings of deflationism, philosophers have come to broaden and deepen the discussion on truth even beyond the boundaries of deflationism itself. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers working on truth, both advocates and critics of deflationary conceptions, in order to take stock of deflationism about truth and of its implications in fields such as metaphysics, logics, epistemology, meta-ethics. We invite therefore submissions of abstracts aiming at evaluating in some respect deflationary conceptions of truth. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Deflationism and the general facts about truth.
- Deflationism and the correspondence intuition.
- Deflationism and so-called factual-defective discourse.
- Deflationism and the normativity of truth.
- Deflationism and paradoxes.
- Deflationism and alethic-pluralism.
- Deflationism and alethic-relativism.
- The “unsubstantiality” of truth.
