7 November 2007, Varieties of deception, W. Künne (Hamburg)

Speaker: W. Künne (Hamburg)
Date: Wednesday 7 November 2007
Time: 17:00
Location: Room 101, Bungehuis, Spuistraat 210

Abstract:
In this talk I shall present a detailed map of a conceptual landscape that contains the notions of misleading, deceiving, cheating, self-deceiving, simulating, acting hypocritically, and lying. In my attempt at throwing some light on these concepts and their interrelations I shall draw upon Bernard Bolzano's sadly neglected work in this area.

Professor Künne is author of the book `Conceptions of Truth' (OUP 2003); see http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199280193

Professor Künne's visit is organised jointly with the Dept. of Philosophy of the Free University, where he will lecture on Frege. Contact Arianna Betti () if you wish to attend.
