Workshop: Necessity, analyticity and the a priori

This workshop is organized jointly by the research projects Models, Modality and Meaning (Arche, St Andrews) and Plurals, Predicates and Paradox (Oslo).

Time and place: Jun 10, 2013 - Jun 11, 2013, Oslo

As Kripke and others have taught us, the concepts of necessity, analyticity, and apriority need to be carefully distinguished. This workshop aims to investigate these notions, their analysis and legitimacy, and their connections, if any.

Speakers include:

Laura Celani (St Andrews)
Aaron Cotnoir (St Andrews)
Geoffrey Hellman (Minnesota)
Bruno Jacinto (St Andrews)
Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins (University of British Columbia and Northern Institute of Philosophy, Aberdeen)
