Eros Corazza (Ikerbasque / Carleton)
« Millian Names »
Jeudi 8 décembre, 14h
Local 422, 2910 boul. Édouard-Montpetit
. (Indications pour s’y rendre : http://bit.ly/philoudem)
Cette conférence aura lieu en anglais.

Résumé : I challenge Mill’s well-celebrated claim that all there is to names is their bearers, viz. that names denote but don’t connote. I’ll defend the view that there is more to names and that, curiously enough, Mill himself hinted at that. Although I’ll have close to nothing to say about the way names relate to their bearers, I’ll end up arguing that names denote and connote. I’ll argue that on top of being tools of direct reference (being tags), names play an important cognitive role in helping to organize our mental and social life.
