21-22 September 2012, What is really possible 2: Logical and Philosophical Aspects of Real Possibility (WIRP-2), Konstanz, Germany

Date: 21-22 September 2012
Location: Konstanz, Germany

We live in a world of possibilities. Much of our practical life - planning, deciding, hoping and fearing - only makes sense before a background of options to choose from and possibilities for what the future will bring: real possibilities in concrete situations. Work on real possibility has so far been mainly technical, e.g., in the formal-logical study of the semantics of the future tense and the problem of future contingents. In this workshop we want to combine logical and philosophical aspects of real possibility.

WIRP-2 will take place as a satellite workshop following the GAP.8 conference of the Society for Analytic Philosophy in Germany. Attendance of the workshop is free, but limited due to space restrictions; if you wish to attend, please send an email.
