Stefano Caputo (University of Sassari) will deliver a talk on truth-pluralism.

Title: Un problema per il funzionalismo aletico

Speaker: Stefano Caputo

Venue: via Azzo Gardino 23, Bologna (aula rossa)

For the reading material see below.

Abstract:

The main difference between standard Alethic Pluralism and Lynch’s Alethic Functionalism is that while for the former there is no single property which is exemplified by all true truth-bearers, for the latter there is such a property, which has in turn a peculiar relation to other properties: truth is manifested by/immanent in different properties in different domains of discourse. The claim I will defend is that Lynch makes too many theoretical demands on the manifestation relation and this makes it a metaphysical monster, that is to say a relation with mutually inconsistent features. In order to make manifestation a coherent notion one should give up some of its original features, but this makes Alethic Functionalism a much less appealing theory than it was supposed to be.
