Type SEMINAR
Course Description This seminar will be concerned with the right way of conceiving of the relation between the metaphysics of some domain on the one hand, and the mental representation, in intentional contents, and in language, of elements of that domain on the other.  Is the metaphysics philosophically prior in the order of explanation to the theory intentional content and the theory of meaning?  Or is some other account of the order of explanation correct?  And what are the ramifications of different answers to these questions?  The seminar will consider these issues both in general terms, and as they arise in particular domains, including: magnitudes; time; the self; abstract objects (we may also be able to cover other areas).  The seminar will serve both as an introduction to the issues, with relevant background reading assigned, and as a presentation of some new positions on the issues.
