Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Conceptual engineering is a new exciting movement in analytic philosophy that focuses on how to assess and on how improve our conceptual devices. The MICE Symposium is about the metaphilosophical issues in conceptual engineering. The first talk will address the issue of how to best construe the subject matter of conceptual engineering. The second will take up the challenge of topic preservation through semantic change in instances of conceptual engineering. And the third one will deal with the issue of devising a (formal) methodological tool that suits the normative purposes of conceptual engineering.
