Weltanschauung, mit Hilfe der Erzählung Kannitverstan etwas geschrieben,

On the truthmaker approach to semantics, the meaning of a statement is identified with the set of states which exactly verify it. Truthmaker semantics differs from possible worlds semantics in its use of states rather than worlds. It differs from other forms of situation semantics in its use of an exact notion of verification, which requires that a state be wholly relevant to the statement it verifies, rather than an inexact notion, which requires only partial relevance. This approach to semantics is receiving increasing interest, much of it driven by a sense that the approach can handle hyperintensional contexts better than other approaches.
During the summer school, participants will be using a pre-publication copy of the book on truthmaker semantics that Kit Fine is co-authoring with Mark Jago.
Who can apply:
The Summer School is open to both graduate students and post-graduate scholars.

Applications are now open for the summer school “The Metaphysics of Relations in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy”, which will be held in Lugano (Switzerland), 6-10 June 2022.
The summer school will be a research-focused, intensive course, open to all, but part of the Master in Philosophy (MAP) at Università della Svizzera italiana (USI).
Applications’ deadline: 31 January 2022.
The summer school research activities will be led by John Marenbon (Trinity College, University Cambridge) and Anna Marmodoro (Universities of Durham & Oxford), who will offer morning lectures. In the afternoons, there will be workshops led by senior graduate assistants, Suf Amichay (University of Cambridge) Chiara Martini (University of Oxford), with the participation of Anna Marmodoro and John Marenbon.
