Although philosophy of language has commonly been understood as a theoretical discipline, recent scholarship has begun to explore how the conceptual tools developed by philosophers of language might be applied in institutional and social settings.
The aim of the 2019 Ratio Conference is to foster this development by discussing how insights from philosophy of language can shed light on important contemporary phenomena in the spheres of politics, law and society, as in philosophical analysis of disagreement, derogatory speech, gendered terms, and propaganda.
