CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Meaning and Categorization, 7-8 Feb 2013, Bielefeld, GERMANY

Meaning and Categorization: Facing the Integration Challenge.

An Interdisciplinary Research Workshop.

Bielefeld, Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF), February 7th-8th 

Convenors: Nikola Kompa (Osnabrck) & Christian Nimtz (Bielefeld)

with: Dirk Geeraerts (Leuven), Frank Jkel (Osnabrck), Christian Nimtz 
(Bielefeld), Nikola Kompa (Osnabrck), Edouard Machery (Pittsburgh), 
Henrike Moll (USC), Hannes Rakoczy (Gttingen), Georges Rey (Maryland), 
Jan de Ruiter (Bielefeld).

Linguists, psychologists, and philosophers of language and mind agree that 
categorization is pivotal to the semantics of general expressions, a 
conviction that had shaped the powerful Traditional Paradigm. With the 
paradigm?s demise, we again face the challenge to explain how a general 
term F?s linguistic meaning, the classification F effects (as well as the 
way it does so), and the methods thinkers/speakers employ to categorize 
items as Fs relate. Guided by the quest for an encompassing account, the 
workshop tackles the issue informed by perspectives from linguistics, 
psychology, and philosophy.

We encourage linguistics, psychologist, and philosophers with interest in 
the field to participate as guests. Since we can accommodate only a 
limited number of guests, you will, however, need to apply for 
registration. Please send an e-mail detailing your interest to:
