The 2016 Frege Lectures in Theoretical Philosophy will be held by Huw Price at the University of Tartu. The title of this year's lectures is “Naturalism, Pragmatism and Representationalism”
Huw Price is Bertrand Russell Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge and Academic Director of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER).
There has been much recent interest in a position variously described as global or universal expressivism, or as non-representational pragmatism. For example, in a 2015 interview Allan Gibbard describes his progress to such a view, saying “As I use the term ‘expressivism’, I, like Price and Horwich, am a universal expressivist.” Other enthusiasts for the view, from rather different directions, include Robert Brandom and Simon Blackburn. In these lectures, Price sets out his own motivations for taking such a view seriously, and his conception of what it involves.
