About the OZSW event calendar

The OZSW event calendar lists academic philosophy events organized by/at Dutch universities, and is offered by the OZSW as a service to the research community. Please check the event in question – through their website or organizer – to find out if you could participate and whether registration is required. Obviously we carry no responsibility for non-OZSW events.

 Add your activity?

A student-assistant will regularly add all (academic, Dutch) philosophy events advertised on Filos-NL to the OZSW event calendar. If you have another event that you would like to see added to this calendar, please check first if it has not already been included. If not, you have two options:

  • Send an e-mail to event.calendar@ozsw.nl, with: type of event, date + time, location, organizer + contact details organizer, title + short description, and a weblink (optional)
  • If you are an OZSW member, you can also log in and add the event yourself. Please take care to select the appropriate event categories!

Please note that we will not respond to requests to include events unless it concerns academic philosophy events, organized by/at Dutch universities

Description

The objectives of the course are to familiarize participants with the theory of objects, developed and defended by Prof. Ed Zalta, and to more generally discuss the topics with which it deals, such as: logical classes, situations, possible and impossible worlds, concepts, Forms, fictions, Fregean senses, Fregean numbers, and mathematical individuals and relations. In this lecture series, we present a body of theorems formally derivable from the axioms of “object theory”. The axioms are motivated and presented in the first…

In this lecture series, we present a body of theorems formally derivable from the axioms of “object theory”. The axioms are motivated and presented in the first lecture, and once they are in place, we define a variety of abstract objects and systematize them by deriving the their governing principles as theorems. We identify and derive principles governing: truth-values, logical classes, situations, possible worlds, impossible worlds, concepts (including complete individual concepts), Forms, fictions, Fregean senses, Fregean (natural) numbers, and theoretical mathematical individuals and relations generally.
