- Looking for origins of intensionality
Two interrelated problems will be discussed. First I will show that in
many cases the change in truth-values resulting from co-extensional
substitution in intensional contexts is due either to the violation of
some presuppositions or to the violation of some "natural"
generic truths. Secondly, an algebraic description of such changes in
truth-value will be given.
A short paper on which this
talk is based is available.
Dr. Richard Zuber is currently a JSPS short-term visitor to Waseda University. See the Japanese page for details.
