Philosophy of Language

In logic and the philosophy of language, we ask questions such as:

  • How should we deal with sentences that speak about their own truth value, validity, necessity, or probability?
  • Is truth grounded in the facts in a sense than can be made formally precise?
  • What is the meaning of logical symbols? Do conditionals have truth conditions?
  • When should we accept a conditional, and how should we change our beliefs when we learn a conditional?
  • What does formal semantics teach us about natural language?
  • And: Is logic normative?
