Workshop Values in Context
Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon
23-24 May 2013

Dispositional accounts of the properties expressed by value predicates elaborate on the apparent mind-dependence of the properties at stake, and contextualism seems to provide a coherent semantic explanation for the expression of a ‘thousand different sentiments excited by the same object’. This workshop provides a forum for the discussion of contextualist accounts of value predicates.
The workshop Values in Context is an initiative of the project Contextualism, Relativism and Practical Conflicts and Disagreements, one of the projects in the ESF EUROCORES EuroUnderstanding programme, Communication in Context, and of the LanCog Research Group (at the Philosophy Centre of the University of Lisbon).

This is the first of a series of two workshops. The second will take place in 2014 in Edinburgh, and will focus on legal norms.

Speakers:

  • Tim Sundell, Kentucky
  • David Plunkett, Dartmouth
  • Gunnar Björnsson, Umeå
  • Isidora Stojanovic, UPF Barcelona
  • Josh Parsons, Corpus Christy, Oxford
  • Dan López de Sa, LOGOS/UB Barcelona
  • Pekka Väyrynen, Leeds.
