15 December 2017, Workshop on Hyperintensional Logics & Truthmaker Semantics, Gent, Belgium

Date: Friday 15 December 2017
Location: Gent, Belgium
Deadline: Wednesday 15 November 2017

Over the past few years, Kit Fine, Mark Jago and many others have developed various hyperintensional logics: logics that do not satisfy replacement of classical equivalents. Instead, a stronger notion of “analytic equivalence” lies at the core of these systems. Semantics that are more fine-grained than possible-world semantics, such as exact truthmaker semantics, have been proposed to interpret hyperintensional logics. They have recently been applied to the theory of counterfactuals and to debates in metaphysics, among other topics. The aim of this workshop is to bring together and promote research in this area, and to draw connections with ongoing work in philosophical logic, including but not limited to: paraconsistency and paracompleteness, probability theory, first- and higher-order logics, deontic reasoning, relevance logic, and modal logic. Keynote speaker: Kit Fine.

There are 3 slots for contributed talks left. Please send a title and abstract (max. 500 words) to the organizers by November 15th, 2017.
