Evaluatives and Expressives Workshop

19th January 2017

Abstract:

Scholars in philosophy of language, linguistics, ethics, and metaethics investigate the evaluative dimension of language from different approaches and perspectives. Several analyses have been developed in order to account for the ways in which language can express emotions and other attitudes (among the most challenging instances of loaded and/or evaluative expressions: expressives, slurs, moral terms, aesthetic predicates, and so on). The Evaluatives and Expressives Workshop aims to bring together such perspectives and promote fruitful dialogue among scholars.

Gli studiosi di filosofia del linguaggio, linguistica, etica e metaetica indagano la dimensione valutativa del linguaggio con approcci e prospettive differenti. Sono state sviluppate diverse teorie per spiegare i modi in cui il linguaggio è in grado di esprimere emozioni e valutazioni: epiteti denigratori, termini morali e predicati estetici sono tra i casi più interessanti di espressioni emotivamente cariche e/o valutative. Il workshop Evaluatives and Expressives si propone di far incontrare approcci diversi e incoraggiare così un dialogo costruttivo tra gli studiosi.
