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 (P29716-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 December 2020. The principal investigator of the project is Dr Julien Murzi. The project employs (or will soon employ) two post-doctoral researches: Dr Lorenzo Rossi and Dr Brett Topey.
In the course of our project, we will host four workshops:
- A two-day workshop on truth, deflationism, and conservativeness (January 26-27, 2018).
- A a three-day workshop on revenge paradoxes (June 27-29, 2018).
- A one-day workshop on truth and knowledge (September 14, 2018)
- A three-day workshop on contextualist theories of truth and paradox (June 26-28, 2019).
- Brett Topey will join the project in March 2019!
