Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce
Annual International Conference
uAnalytiCon-2019: Identity, Individual Concepts, and Semantic Uniformity

The conference aims to examine the philosophical difficulties in modal logic and the application of modal logic to the wide range of philosophical problems. We will focus on the higher-order modal logics, the difficulties appearing while quantifying into modal contexts, and the problem of identity across possible worlds. The other themes include developing semantics with modal operators, vagueness operator, and supervaluationism, the role of modal assumptions in science as well as intensional paradoxes.

Keynote speaker: Timothy Williamson (University of Oxford).

  • philosophy of language;
  • logic;
