In great part through the work of Kit Fine, truthmaker semantics has recently been thoroughly developed and applied to many different topics, both within philosophy and in other areas. The aim of this workshop is to bring together people working on the foundations, development and applications of the framework, including researchers who are critical of it or who argue that its benefits can be had in other frameworks, for instance the framework of possible worlds semantics.

We are pleased to share two updates concerning this workshop. The list of the invited speakers with the titles of their talks is now available:

  • Maria Aloni (ILLC, Amsterdam), “From Truthmakers to Information States: Disjunction and Negation in BSML”
