CfA: Deceptive Speech Acts in Philosophy and Law
Call for abstracts for a workshop organized by the Jagiellonian Center for Law, Language and Philosophy – October 5-6th, Kraków, Poland.
Untruth and deception have always been a topic of great interest to philosophers, as well as being of obviously central importance to jurists and legal theorists. Still, recent years have seen a stark increase of interest in concepts and theories of deceptive and misleading utterances. Old definitions are being reconsidered and novel topics emerge, such as the variety of non-assertive acts that might or might not be characterized as lies (questions, implicatures, explanations etc.) or, more puzzlingly still, the possibility of lying or misleading utterances produced by non-human, artificial agents. Moreover, theoretical debates are being supported with an unprecedented wave of empirical research.
These new developments are the main theme of the workshop “Deceptive Speech Acts in Philosophy and Law” organized by the Jagiellonian Center for Law, Language and Philosophy. The workshop will take place in Kraków, on October 5-6th. Besides invited speakers, up to for slots will be filled by open submissions.
Submissions pertaining to the intersection of philosophical pragmatics and legal theory and practice are especially encouraged, as are those that draw connections between conceptual and empirical investigations.
Please send an abstract of 500-800 words (excluding bibliography) by June 30th in an anonymized file to [email protected] In the body of your email please specify your name, affiliation and the title of your submission.
