Language, Knowledge, and Metaphysics

Proceedings of the First SIFA Graduate Conference

Massimiliano Carrara and Vittorio Morato, eds

The key-terms "language", "knowledge" and "metaphysics" arguably shape
most of the recent researches in analytic philosophy. This volume aim to
address some of the currently debated issues revolving around these
three fundamental areas and, in particular: can the notion of
"descriptive name" be extended to names of natural kinds? What does it
mean for a belief to be justified? Is there a principled way to draw the
distinction between causal and non causal relations? Do future
contingent claims require us to employ a notion of relative truth? In
what sense analytic sentences could be taken to be known a posteriori?

The twelve papers collected in this volume arise from a selection of
those presented during the First Graduate Conference of the Italian
Society for Analytic Philosophy (SIFA) held at the University of Padua
in September 2007. The authors are all young and brilliant scholars
coming from some of the most prestigious universities in the world:
University College (London), Nottingham, Princeton, Kentucky, Stanford,
Eastern Piedmont, St. Andrews, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Duhram,
Catholic University of Leuven, London School of Economics.
