LOGIC, KNOWLEDGE, AND LANGUAGE
Paul Gochet Memorial conference

14 & 15 march 2013, Brussels, Belgium

CONFERENCE THEME. The impact of the development of formal logic on 
philosophy in the 20th Century is well-documented. More recently the rise 
of formal philosophy, and in particular the application of formal methods 
in epistemology and semantics has proved that logical and mathematical 
methods have a bright future in philosophy. With his work on Quine, P. 
Gochet played an important role in the former movement. Yet, he was also 
one of the first to recognized the importance of the interactive and 
dynamic turn in epistemology and formal semantics that characterize the 
latter movement. The scholars and philosophers that will participate to 
this event have all played major roles in either or both of these 
movements.

SPEAKERS. Patrick Blackburn, Jaakko Hintikka, Philippe de Rouilhan, Dov 
Gabbay, Susan Haack, Gerhard Heinzmann, Hourya Sinaceur, Jean-Maurice
