Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The primary aim of the workshop is to bring together recent developments in the discussion of immunity to error through misidentification (IEM) and explore the connections between IEM and essential indexicality.
The main questions are:
- What types of IEM are there? Which thoughts are IEM?
- What is the role of identification processes in the explanation of IEM?
- Can the absence of identification processes help explain the essentially indexical nature of certain I-thoughts?
The tentative program is as follows:
11.30-12.30 John Campbell (Berkeley): Another Look at Shoemaker on Self-Reference
14.00-15.00 Simon Prosser (St. Andrews): The Structure of Indexical Belief
15.30-16.30 François Recanati (Paris): Immunity and Relativization
17.00-18.00 Annalisa Coliva (Modena): Logical immunity to error through misidentification. What it is and why it matters
