TRUTH AND GROUNDS

24 -29 May, 2015 at
Mount Truth, Ascona, Switzerland

CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION
What is truth? One view of the nature of truth has it that it is a very thin notion, perhaps even a superfluous notion. According to another view, truth is a very thick notion. For example, one might think that every truth is a truth because it has a truth-maker, a ground. But what is a ground? The notion of grounding is intimately linked to the notion of explanation. Many think that a theory of grounding is required to understand the notion of truth-making and so, it is argued, truth. The conference aims to explore theories of truth, or of grounding, or of their relation to one another.
