CLMPST XVI — 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology
00 Dec 0000 - 16 Sep 2019 • Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract:
The 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (CLMPST) will take place in Prague, August 5-10, 2019, organised under the auspices of the Division for Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology of the International Union for History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (DLMPST/IUHPST) by the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The congress has a long history and a unique character, bringing together the communities of logicians, philosophers of logic and philosophers and historians of science and technology. The theme of the 16th edition of the congress is "Bridging across academic cultures". We believe that the communities and societies in both logic and philosophy/history of science are often fragmented and isolated from each other. We want to contribute to redressing this state of things.

F3 - Fighting Fake Facts
04 Feb 2019 • Basel, Switzerland
Abstract:
Willkommen zu einer ungewöhnlichen wissenschaftlichen Konferenz, die sich mit einer der Grundlagen der Wissenschaft beschäftigt! Einige Leser haben sich vielleicht am Titel gestört, den wir gewählt haben, und sie monieren, dass es so etwas wie einen «fake fact», also eine falsche Tatsache nicht gibt. Wenn Sie jedoch nach dem Begriff «fake fact» googeln, werden mehr als 15.000 Treffer gemeldet. Tatsächlich sind also «fake facts» nicht nur ein Oxymoron, sondern auch eine bedauernswerte Wahrheit, die die gesamte Wissenschaft zu untergraben droht.

Post-truth — The semantics and pragmatics of saying "what you believe to be false"
06 Mar 2019 - 08 Mar 2019 • University of Bremen, Germany
Abstract:
Semantics has typically focused on idealized cooperative conversation, where every assertion contributes to a lofty shared truth-seeking endeavor in order to establish a common ground of shared beliefs between speaker and hearer. However, since the phenomena like the above all run counter to this idea, their explanation is usually left to pragmatics, philosophy, or literary theory. And while Grice's other maxims have gained a lot of attention and sparked entire research traditions (quantity implicatures, relevance theory, Horn's division of pragmatic labor and Levinson's M-principle), the role of the quality maxim remained a bit underexplored in linguistic semantics and pragmatics.
