Welcome to the website of our project! The Liar and its Revenge in Context is an FWF-funded research project on truth, semantic paradox, and context-dependence (P2971-G24). The project systematically explores the limitations of non-classical solutions to the paradoxes, and develops a novel, fully classical contextualist approach – one that, unlike existing approaches, is immune from revenge objections and allows for absolutely unrestricted quantification.
The project runs from January 2017 to June 2020. The principal investigator of the project is Dr Julien Murzi. Dr Lorenzo Rossi will be a post-doctoral research for the duration of the project. A second post-doctoral position, for one year, has just been advertised.
In the course of our project, we will host three workshops:
- A workshop on truth, deflationism, and conservativeness (January 26-27, 2018).
- A workshop on revenge paradoxes (June 27-29, 2018).
- A workshop on contextualist theories of truth and paradox (June 26-28, 2019).
