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.
