28-29 November 2014, "The Semantics/Pragmatics Distinction and Philosophical Methodology", Zuerich, Switzerland

Date: 28-29 November 2014
Location: Zuerich, Switzerland

The primary aim of the conference is to examine the purpose of the semantics-pragmatics distinction and the arguments referred to in order to defend a particular account of the distinction.

The conference intends to address the following questions: What is the function of the semantics-pragmatics distinction? Are the different participants in the debate trying to account for the same distinction? On which basis, i.e. referring to what kind of arguments, can a particular account of the distinction between semantics and pragmatics be defended?
