Course description

Course summary Students specialising in Philosophy of Language and Logic examine linguistic expressions such as words, sentences, texts and dialogues; putting emphasis on the context of interpretation.
Course description Philosophy of Language and Logic involves the study of linguistic expressions such as words, sentences, texts and dialogues, where the emphasis is on the context in which these expressions are being interpreted. In its teaching, the section "Philosophy of Language and Logic" focuses on the development of analytical philosophy from Frege onwards and the rise of modern semantics in the last decades of the 20th century. Its main research interests are the context-dependence of interpretation and its relation to formal semantics and pragmatics, on the one hand, and philosophy of mind, on the other. Typical themes that are addressed are context-dependence and presupposition, dynamic theories of meaning, discourse and discourse structure, the analysis of propositional attitudes and their relation to mental states, and the relation between interpretation and psychological processes.
