Lunch Seminar “What are Commitments?”
12 February @ 12:30 - 13:30
Next Wednesday (February 12th) we will have Guido Löhr (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) as our speaker.
His talk is aptly titled “What are commitments?”. Please find the abstract below.
We will meet from 12.30 to 13.30 in EOS01.140 (yes, it’s our familiar room!). Hope to see you all there!
Abstract: What are commitments?
The notion of commitment has been applied widely in our
theorizing of action (joint action, speech acts, reasons for acting).
But what exactly are commitments? This question has not been fully
discussed in the literature. This makes commitment accounts difficult to
assess. In my talk, I will give an account of what commitments are. I
will respond to previous analyses in the literature (Gilbert, Bratman)
and discuss Bart Geurts’ recent account.
