the title and the abstract of the talk below.
Hope to see many of you there!
TITLE: 'Disagreement in Attitude'
ABSTRACT: In this talk, I explore the notion of "disagreement in
attitude", both in its use by contextualists in recent debates over the
semantics of perspectival expressions (predicates of taste, aesthetic
adjectives, moral terms, epistemic vocabulary etc.) and as proposed by
early expressivists. I present the initial proposal by C.L. Steveson and
some criticisms and reformulations of it found in the literature. I then
raise my own concerns in connection to its use by contemporary
contextualists and expressivists to account for the problem posed by the
phenomenon of faultless disagreement.
