During the Sommersemester 2012, I will be the Fulbright-University of Vienna Visiting Professor in Humanities and Social Sciences in the Institut für Philosophie at the University of Vienna. I will teach two courses and collaborate on a research project with Prof. Martin Kusch.

The research project concerns a topic currently debated in the philosophy of language. Philosophers have largely given up on the hope that semantic properties such as the meaning of a word would be naturalistically reducible. In response, a number of people have proposed that the concept of meaning is in some sense a normative concept. The aim of this project is to defend one such conception of linguistic meaning.

Project commenced on February 1, 2012
