Următoarea conferință din cadrul seminarului de cercetare al Departamentului de Filosofie Teoretică în parteneriat cu CELFIS va fi susținută de dr. Paula Tomi (Universitatea București & Universitatea Politehnică București)..
Titlul prezentării sale este: ‘Is Dialetheism the only way out for Deflationism?’. Iată și rezumatul:

‘Deflationary theories of truth had two different responses to the Liar. A first class of deflationists considers that this paradox does not represent a problem for their theories (Grover, Gupta). On the other hand, other deflationists, among who is the minimalist approach (Horwich), find the Liar to be a serious issue. Because of this, Horwich excludes the paradoxical instantiations of the T-schema from his theory. His solution faces some serious criticism. The main problem seems to be that he limits the generalization of the T-schema and this generalization is the main reason why truth is not redundant and has a function. Following this line of criticism Beall and Armour-Garb argued that a deflationist should also be a dialetheist. The aim of this presentation is to critically present Beall and Armour-Garb’s solution and try to provide an answer to the question mentioned in the title: is dialetheism the only solution for a minimalist?’
