Internatioal Workshop

Rules, Norms, and Reasons 1: Kripkenstein's Paradox.

May 20-21, 2019

Aula Crociera alta di Giurisprudenza, Via Festa del Perdono, 7 e Aula Pio XII, Aula Pio XII, Via S. Antonio 5, Milano

The Rules, Norms, and Reasons workshops - hosted by the "Piero Martinetti" Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan - are designed to provide a forum to philosophers interested in foundational issues concerning normativity, very broadly construed. The format of the workshops provides ample opportunity for speakers to receive constructive feedback on their work, and for other participants to get acquainted with new developments in the field.
The inaugural workshop will be held on May 20th-21st, 2019 and will be devoted to Kripke's Wittgenstein's rule-following paradox. The speakers are Jody Azzouni, Christopher Gauker, Anandi Hattiangadi, Saul Kripke, Ásgeir Berg Matthíasson, Romina Padro, Krzysztof Poslajko, Kateryna Samoilova, James Shaw, and Giacomo Sillari.

Most of the workshop will take place in via Festa del Perdono 7, in the Crociera Alta di Giurisprudenza room. The only exception is Tuesday afternoon's session, which will be held in via Sant'Antonio 5, in the Pio XII room.
