"Truthmaking, Semantical Grounding, & Paradoxes"

22-23 Aug 2022
Bristol, England


The ERC-Starting Grant Truth and Semantics (TRUST 
803684, https://www.truthandsemantics.xyz) at the University of Bristol, 
together with dr. Johannes Korbmacher (University of Utrecht), is 
organizing a two-day workshop on truthmaking, semantical grounding, and 
paradoxes. The workshop will be held in person in Bristol (UK) on August 
22-23, 2022.

The aim of the conference is twofold. On the one hand, we would like to 
investigate the role that various forms of truthmaking semantics and 
semantical grounding can have in diagnosing the problematic nature of 
paradoxes (including, but not limited to, semantic paradoxes, paradoxes of 
vagueness, paradoxes of conditionals…), and how they can be used to 
generate possible solutions to them; and, on the other hand, we would like 
to study paradoxes of truthmaking or paradoxes of semantic grounding.
