Dimensions of Normativity


21-23 June 2012

Frankfurt am Main

Organisers: Stefan Gosepath, Martin Seel, Marcus Willaschek

There are various 'kinds' or 'dimensions' of normativity, each with its specific characteristics, such as moral, pragmatic, legal, epistemic and aesthetic normativity as well as mental normativity and the normativity of logic and of meaning. What are the differences and commonalities between these dimensions of normativity? Can they come into conflict with one another? Are they all instances of an overarching kind or structure? These are the questions we want to discuss at our conference. Hence, each speaker is invited to focus on a specific dimension of normativity, but also to address questions concerning its relation to other dimensions and to 'normativity' as an overarching structure (if such a thing exists).
