23-24 August 2013, Groundedness in Semantics and Beyond, Oslo, Norway

Date: 23-24 August 2013
Location: Oslo, Norway

The notion of groundedness has been central to research on the semantic paradoxes ever since Kripke's seminal work on truth, and the notion continues to inspire work in this area. Recently, the notion has been applied more widely, for instance to criteria of identity, abstraction principles, and the semantics of modal predicates. There is also a renewed interest in the notion of grounding in metaphysics, and of course the focus on 'grounded objects' in all of these areas is closely related to the emphasis on well-founded sets in set theory. This workshop aims to bring together researchers who deal with groundedness in logic, semantics, metaphysics, and the philosophy of mathematics in order to get a clearer understanding of this concept and of its applications.
