Truth and Paradox Workshop (May 24 - 25, 2013)
Idea and Motivation
Tarski's Theorem presents us with a familiar dilemma: if English is to contain its own truth-predicate, then either some instances of the T-Scheme must fail, or our logic cannot be classical. On the first approach, truth is "complex". This workshop brings together researchers working on axiomatic, semantic, and revisonary theoris of truth. The aim is to identify new connections between recent formal theories of key semantic notions, such as truth, validity, and necessity.
