Faculty Prof. J. W. Powell, Philosophy

Prof. J. W. Powell, Philosophy, will deliver an invited presentation to the North American Wittgenstein Society (NAWS) and the Pacific Division of the American Philosophical Association on March 28, 2018. The title is “Locke and Heraclitus on Whether Language Is Based on Convention.”

Locke says yes, “else there would be but one language amongst all humans.” Heraclitus says no, roughly because what makes sense for one must make sense for all. There is of course more to the story.
