Normative Language Workshop

26th – 27th October 2013

St Andrews, School II


Description: The study of normative and evaluative language has always had an important place in metaethics. Recently both the volume and sophistication of research on this topic has increased immensely. This work is interesting in its own right; but it also promises to shed light on issues in both substantive normative philosophy and in the study of natural language more generally. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers doing exciting work on different topics related to normative language.
