Imogen Dickie “Proper Names: Transition to the End Game”

November 5, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

| Humanities 2, Room 259

Abstract:

I shall prove a principle which brings out the significance for accounts of aboutness and reference of the fact that justification is truth conducive; use this principle to develop an account of reference-fixing for proper names which presents an alternative to the tired menu of traditional causalisms, descriptivisms, and crosses between; and identify two questions around which the next phase in discussions of reference-fixing for proper names should be structured.
