This is the first installment of a series of workshops on meaning--its nature, representation and interfaces--jointly organized by linguists at Leibniz-ZAS and philosophers of language at the Humboldt University, Berlin. The first theme will explore the representation of meaning and its interface with phenomena that arguably transcend the limits of truth-conditional theories. Carlotta Pavese (Duke University) will present a theory of practical meaning that explores the interface between meaning and motor commands, and Frank Veltman (ILLC, University of Amsterdam) will present an account of prejudice and generics that motivates a dynamic, non-truth conditional account of meaning.
