This is the seventh year of the course Philosophy of lingustics. There are a number of themes that are discussed every year like: What is the nature of languuage? Is langauge something material, physical, mental, sociatal or abstract? What kind of knowledge is the knowledge of language.? What is the relationship of language and mind?
At the directors meeting this year in Dubrovnik the directors were unanimous in the idea of inviting prof. Kent Bach (UCLA) to our next philosophy of linguistics conference to take place Sept. 5th to 9th, 2011. We decided to dedicate a day or two of the conference to his work. This work is central to a growing interest at our conferences in the "semantics-pragmatics" distinction. We would invite people to write papers about Ken Bach’s work. We are also pleased to announce that Kent Bach has accepted our invitation and will comment on the presented papers himself.
