The Meaning(s) of 'True' Conference
- ERC-Starting Grant ‘Truth and Semantics’ (TRUST 803684)
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The aim of the conference is to explore the semantics and pragmatics of the word ‘true’ in natural language. Central topics of discussion will include whether or not ‘true’ is ambiguous, context sensitive, vague, gradable, presuppositional, or lacking content altogether. Other relevant topics will include what sort of property or concept ‘true’ expresses, connections between natural language ‘true’ and the semantic paradoxes, and syntactic properties of ‘true’.
We would like to invite the submission of abstracts for several further talks on the conference’s themes. Talks might address the topics described above, but those related to broader aspects of the use or role of ‘true’ in natural language will also be welcome. See the CFP for further information.
