NORMATIVITY OF MEANING: SELLARSIAN PERSPECTIVES
PRAGUE INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM
organized by the
Department of Logic, Institute of Philosophy
Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic
May 25-27 2011, Villa Lanna, Prague, Czech Republic
The colloquium continues the series of annual international meetings organized in Prague by the department. The present colloquium aims to bring together the legacy of Sellars’ ideas with other current philosophical discussions on the question of the normativity of meaning. However, contributions do not need to focus solely on this exact issue; we welcome any submission addressing normativity and/or meaning related to a broadly Sellarsian framework. The invited speakers of the colloquium are Robert Brandom (Pittsburgh), Michael Williams (Baltimore), Christopher Gauker (Cincinnati) and James O'Shea (Dublin).
The conference fee is EUR 80 (covers participation, refreshment, book of abstract & banquet. A possibility of accommodation (a limited number of rooms) will be directly at the conference site.
Potential contributors are asked to submit a two page abstract; the deadline is January 15, 2011. Abstracts are to be submitted by e-mail, as PDF files, prepared for anonymous reviewing. (To prevent problems caused by e-mail failures, the receipt of every abstract will be confirmed within one week.) Notification of acceptance will be distributed by February 28. Contributed papers are scheduled for 40 minutes including discussion. Please direct your abstracts to:
