The topic of ineffability has a long and distinguished philosophical history, though contemporary analytical work on it is sparse. This one-day workshop brings together four of the leading scholars whose work revolves around (some aspects of) ineffability. The goal of this workshop is to shed light on the different perspectives on and approaches to the concept of ineffability, and to gain a deeper understanding of questions regarding the possible metaphysical structures underlying ineffability, the epistemic implications of ineffability, and the applications of the concept in aesthetic and religious contexts.

Participation in the workshop is free of charge, but registration by email is kindly requested ([email protected]).
