Stefano Predelli is giving lectures about proper names on March/April, 2016

Prof. Stefano Predelli (Philosophy, University of Nottingham) will give some conferences about proper names  on March/April, 2016, at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (FrenchÉcole des hautes études en sciences socialesEHESS) in Paris

He specializes in Philosophy of Language and Aesthetics. He is the author of Meaning Without Truth (Oxford University Press, 2013) and numerous articles in important journals. During last year 2015 he published Russell-Names: An Introduction to Millian Descriptivism (Journal of Philosophical Logic) and Who’s Afraid of the Predicate Theory of Names? (Linguistics and Philosophy). 

The topics sound just great! I'd like to join these conferences! They correspond to what I researched on at the Paris X: associative fields, connotative and reflexive semantics of proper names as precedential (lexicultural) phenomena... Awesome!!!
