22-26 July 2013, 2nd Hamburg Summer School in Philosophy: Kit Fine on Truthmaker Semantics, Hamburg, Germany

Date: 22-26 July 2013
Location: Hamburg, Germany

This course examines and develops a version of situation semantics called truthmaker semantics. The first part of the course provides a basic exposition of the semantics; while the second part of the course considers a number of different applications of the semantics. Special emphasis will be placed on the notion of partial content, which derives from Kant's notion of an analytic truth and provides an alternative to the notion of logical consequence in dealing with many problems.

During the course, Professor Kit Fine (Silver Professor of Philosophy & Mathematics at NYU) will present and lead discussion on both published and unpublished work on the topic; opportunities for presentations from participants will also be provided.

More information regarding the Summer School is available on the course website (http://hamburgersommerkurs.wordpress.com/), but if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the organizers at .
