Il giorno 26 giugno alle ore 11, nei consueti locali dell’Istitituto Tarello per la Filosofia del Diritto, Via Balbi, 30, V piano il dottorando Samuele Chilovi (Universitat de Barcelona, Gruppo Logos) terrà un seminario dal titolo “The Semantics and Pragmatics of According to the Law” (scrito con JJ Moreso).

Abstract: In this paper, we offer an analysis of the truth conditions of legal statements – statements to the effect that according to the law, such-and-such is the case – in cases where the operator ‘according to the law’ takes under its scope a stipulative or fictional sentence. Further, we advocate a general principle to determine the implicit content that is expressed by utterances of provisions of the same kind. To do so, we draw on the philosophical literature on the semantics of the fictional operator ‘in fiction x …’, and raise some objections to some of the most influential accounts on the topic.
