Number Title Instructor Days/time Room
290-5 Graduate Seminar: Consciousness, Language and Social Ontology Searle Tu 2-4 234 Moses Hall

This seminar will cover a variety of topics under the general headings in its title. I want to begin by looking at the problem of disjunctivism and we will start with Tyler Burge’s article on the subject. When we finish with disjunctivism, I want to reexamine the issue of collective intentionality in light of some recent criticisms of my views on the subject. These discussion will then lead in one of or both of two directions: one about perception and one about language. Right now I do not have in focus what exactly I want to cover, but these are the general directions in which I am moving.
