Applied Philosophy of Language: Politics and Power
Although philosophy of language has traditionally been understood as a purely theoretical discipline, recent scholarship has begun to explore practical applications of the conceptual tools developed by philosophers of language.
The aim of the 2019 Ratio Conference is to foster this development by discussing how insights from philosophy of language can shed light on important contemporary phenomena in the spheres of politics, law and society, as in philosophical analysis of disagreement, derogatory speech, gendered terms, and propaganda.
