Meaning and essence: ancient and contemporary perspectives
Friday, 10 March, 10.30 -17.30
This workshop aims to bring together a number of young researchers working in logic, philosophy of language, epistemology or argumentation theory on some key issues of common interest, but also of great importance for contemporary philosophy, such as theories of meaning and essentialism. In order to accomplish this, we thought about including an incursion back in time to what could be considered the starting point of such theories, as it is generally accepted among scholars that pursuits of this sort, in the Western tradition, first appeared in classical Greece.
Participants: Mircea Dumitru, Iovan Drehe, Mihai Rusu, Alexandru Dragomir, Constantin Brîncuș, Adrian Ludușan.
