Faculty John W. Powell, Philosophy

Prof. John Powell, Philosophy, will present an invited paper 28 March in San Diego at the North American Wittgenstein Society’s session of the Pacific Division American Philosophical Association. The paper aims to clarify the issue of whether language is conventional and sides with Heraclitus in claiming the currently widely-endorsed conventionalism is baseless and empty and supported by a tissue of begged questions. The paper also surveys stakes involved for current accounts of language as signs. with a fair amount of name-dropping. A draft will be posted to the APA Pacific Division Program website.
