Minutes from "Philosophy of Language - Reading Seminar - MacFarlane on Disagreement" on 20 Jan 2010 - 10:00

21 Jan 2010
Europe/Rome
  1. Contextualism/Pluralism about disagrement

    It is unclear whether MacFarlane (from now on "MF")'s stance on disagreement is contextualist or pluralist. If the latter. it would require a common core of principles, though allowing for further principles that describe the different notions of disagreement. If on the other hand MF's position on disagreement is conextualist, its committment is confinded to the idea thatthe relational expression of disagrement "D(x,y,phi-ing,c)" can designate different relations in different "contexts of a disagreement".
