25 Years In Contradiction
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
This conference marks the 25th anniversary of the publication of Graham Priest’s In Contradiction. It is hosted by the School of Humanities at the University of Glasgow.
In Contradiction is the first serious defence of the view that there are true contradictions (dialetheism), as a response to the paradoxes of self-reference. The transition of dialetheism from a view on the ‘lunatic fringe’, to be dismissed with an incredulous stare, to one of the major players in the debate surrounding truth and paradox, is one of the most significant developments in philosophical logic of the last 30 years. Priest’s work and, in particular, In Contradiction has been central to the development of dialetheism, with the latter (now expanded in its second edition) still regarded as the view’s canonical text.
