Transcendental Arguments in Practical Philosophy

International Conference

Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg / University of Greifswald, Germany

November 12-15, 2014

Since the publication of Stroud’s classic paper of 1968, general discussions on transcendental arguments have often been received with serious reservations. At the same time, transcendental arguments continue to play a prominent role in some recent approaches to practical philosophy. Also, some authors argue that transcendental reasoning might be more promising in the context of practical philosophy than in theoretical contexts.

The Communication of Certainty and Uncertainty: linguistic, psychological, philosophical aspects PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 21 October 2011 19:33
3 – 5 October 2012
University of Macerata (Italy)

The Certainty or Uncertainty of a piece of information communicated by a speaker plays a significant role both in building knowledge or beliefs in the interlocutor’s mind and in choosing the appropriate linguistic and non-linguistic behaviour during and after verbal interactions.

The Conference focuses on how interlocutors express their individual degrees of Certainty or Uncertainty towards the piece of information they are giving hearers/readers during the communicative process, i.e. at the time when (= Now) and in the place where (= Here) communication occurs. This topic may be related, more or less directly, to what in the linguistic literature is called epistemicity and evidentiality.

The Conference topic can be approached from different perspectives and in different – European and non European – languages.

Proposals are invited for papers mainly on linguistic, psychological and philosophical aspects of the communication of Certainty and Uncertainty. The Conference aims to be interdisciplinary and therefore welcomes proposals from scholars from different areas.

We are particularly interested in studying the communication of Certainty and Uncertainty in dialogue; we are interested in how it evolves during the interactional sequences between at least two interlocutors, how an interlocutor switches from Certainty to Uncertainty and vice-versa, how a content communicated as Certain or Uncertain is disrupted or argued, negotiated and co-constructed by the interlocutors. This may also be approached from a non-verbal communication standpoint. (more…)
