The Power of Naive Truth. Hartry Field 4:15 pm
The Power of Naive Truth. Hartry Field @ CUNY Grad Center, 7395
Feb 3 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
While non-classical theories of truth that take truth to be transparent have some obvious advantages over any classical theory that evidently must take it as non-transparent, several authors have recently argued that there’s also a big disadvantage of non-classical theories as compared to their “external” classical counterparts: proof-theoretic strength. Some of them have concluded that this gives a decisive advantage to classical logic theories. Williamson has argued this too. While conceding the relevance of proof-theoretic[...]

Is Free Choice Cancellable? Melissa Fusco 4:15 pm
Is Free Choice Cancellable? Melissa Fusco @ CUNY Grad Center, 7395
Feb 10 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
I explore the implications of the Tense Phrase deletion operation known as sluicing (Ross 1969) for the semantic and pragmatic literature on the Free Choice effect (Kamp 1973, von Wright 1969). I argue that the time-honored ‘I don’t know which’-riders on Free Choice sentences, traditionally taken to show that the effect is pragmatic, are sensitive to scope. Careful attention to such riders suggests that these sluices do not show cancellation on Free Choice antecedents in which disjunction scopes[...]

Could a Middle Level be the Most Fundamental? Sara Bernstein (Notre Dame) 4:00 pm
Could a Middle Level be the Most Fundamental? Sara Bernstein (Notre Dame) @ CUNY Grad Center, rm 5307
Feb 20 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Debates over what is fundamental assume that what is fundamental must be either a “top” level (roughly, the biggest or highest-level thing), or a “bottom” level (roughly, the smallest or lowest-level things). Here I sketch a middle view between top-ism and bottom-ism, that a middle level could be the most fundamental, and argue for its possibility. I then suggest that this view satisfies the desiderata of asymmetry, irreflexivity, intransitivity, and well-foundedness of fundamentality, and that[...]

A Truthmaker Semantics for Modal Logics. Dongwoo Kim 4:15 pm
A Truthmaker Semantics for Modal Logics. Dongwoo Kim @ CUNY Grad Center, 7395
Feb 24 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
This paper attempts to provide an exact truthmaker semantics for a family of normal modal propositional logic. The new semantics can be regarded as an “exactification” of the Kripke semantics in the sense of Fine (2014). For it offers an account of the accessibility relation on worlds in terms of the banning and allowing relations on states. The main idea is that an exact truthmaker for “Necessarily P” is a state that bans the exact[...]
