* Franz Berto (UvA) “Naïve Meinongianism and neo-Meinongianisms (of Three Different Kinds)”
Abstract: Gilbert Ryle once claimed: “Gegenstandstheorie … is dead, buried, and not going to be resurrected”. He referred to (what he took to be) Meinong's object theory, which was taken by most people as refuted after Russell’s turn-of-the-Century attack. Russell fired two objections against Meinongianism: the Objection from Inconsistency (that object theory violates the Law of Non-Contradiction), and the Objection from Triviality (that the theory allows one to prove the existence of anything one wills, a priori). What Russell actually attacked, though, is a view sometimes labelled “Naïve Meinongianism”, and of which it is unclear whether anyone – Meinong included – ever subscribed to it. Since the Eighties, Meinongianism has been revitalised in three main ways by three neo-Meinongian theories (or families thereof), usually labeled Nuclear, Dual Copula and Modal Meinongianism. After introducing Russell’s purported twofold refutation, in this talk I explore how the three views reply to the two Russellian objections in different ways.
* Natalia Danilkina (RUG) ”From Value Being To Human Being and Other Possible Directions. The Ways of Nicolai Hartmann’s Anthropology”
* Carlo Ierna (UU) “How Brentano met Aristotle’s Friend, the Son of Diares”
Admission is free, no registration required.
