Please join us for the next colloquium in our 2013/14 colloquium series:
Speaker: Thomas Ede Zimmerman (University of Frankfurt)
Date & Time: Friday, March 14, 3:30 pm
Place: Education Building Rm. 433
Title: On the ontological status of semantic values
The following three theses will be defended, and connections between them will be established:
1. Model-theoretic natural language semantics is not a theory of meaning.
2. Extensions (“generalized” quantifiers, truth values, …) must be distinguished from referents.
3. Intension must be distinguished from content.
