DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY The Philosophy Department is pleased to announce a seminar which will be presented by an expert of worldwide renown in Philosophy of Language, Professor Chris Gauker, of the University of Cincinnati. Contexts without Intentions First, I point out that the phenomena of context-relativity go well beyond assignment of referents to indexicals. Second, I argue that if there is a role for speaker intentions in determining the truth conditions of an utterance, the role is that of determining the context pertinent to an utterance. Finally, I give five different reasons to deny that speaker intentions determine the context pertinent to an utterance. Date: Wednesday, 8 August Time: 12:30 – 14:00 Venue: Room 628, th 6 floor – Philosophy Department (Arts Building) ALL ARE WELCOME!
