Mind and Language (M&L)


This research group is a sequel to the CPR team which existed at Institut Jean Nicod between 2009 and 2015 and hosted François Recanati’s ERC project ‘Content, Context and Compositionality’ (2009-2013). It is now associated with Recanati’s chair at College de France. The group deals with several topics at the intersection of the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of language, in particular : mental files and the theory of reference ; the semantics/pragmatics distinction ; act-theoretic approaches to propositional content ; first-person thought ; concepts, rationality and commmunication ; norms, facts and values.
