Philosophy of Communication

Philosophy of Communication


Convenor: Professor Kasia Jaszczolt

This seminar addresses cutting-edge questions concerning meaning in language, mind and discourse. Topics include meaning conventions, collaborative construction of meaning and issues in ethics of communication such as lying and misleading or impoliteness. The final program takes into consideration particular interests of the participants. No background in philosophy is required but attendance at the Lent Term Semantics and Pragmatics lectures (Li10) is strongly recommended for students with little background in these areas of linguistics.
