Spring 2019 Logic Seminar Schedule

24 January (Room 112, Dicksonsgatan 4)
Speaker: Graham E. Leigh
Title: Iterating self-applicable truth

7 February (Room T340): Informal meeting

21 February: (Room 112, Dicksonsgatan 4)

7 March (**T219**)
Speaker: Peter Pagin (Stockholm)
Title: Indexicality and time
Abstarct: In this talk, I shall briefly present the Switcher Semantics framework and the related idea of general compositionality. I shall then move on to David Kaplan's arguments that we need to postulate temporal propositions, true/false at world-time pairs, as the meanings-in-context of some natural language sentences, more precisely sentences with temporal context dependence. Kaplan's arguments concern the rejection of vacuous temporal operations and the compositionality of content, that is, meaning-in-context.
I shall present the arguments, some of the reactions to them in the literature (if there is time), and the Switcher Semantics solution. I will finally consider the question whether validity in Kaplan's Logic of Demonstratives is preserved in the switcher semantics for these sentences.
