The problem with the Frege–Geach problem

Nate Charlow
2013 Philosophical Studies  
Drawing on considerations from the semantics of directive language (e.g., imperatives), I argue that, although certain forms of Expressivism (like Gibbard's) do run into at least one version of the Problem  ...  , it is reasonably clear that there is a version of Expressivism that does not.  ...  Thanks to Peter Ludlow for the inspiration for this project. Thanks also to audiences at Arché and Semantics in Philosophy in Europe III.  ...

This manifesto presents a vision for ABPMSs and discusses research challenges that need to be surmounted to realize this vision.  ...  To this end, we define the concept of ABPMS, we outline the lifecycle of processes within an ABPMS, we discuss core characteristics of an ABPMS, and we derive a set of challenges to realize systems with  ...  For example, a Petri net specifying the prescribed behavior of a process is an example of a tightly framed execution, while a set of temporal logic constraints that must hold true during the execution  ...

The Importance Of Human Communication Systems And The Teaching Of The English Language

Taghi Jabbarifar
2014 Journal of International Education Research (JIER)  
This study presents an overall review of the paradigms that contribute to the making and development of functional human linguistics and communication skills and the teaching of language.  ...  implicatures take into consideration not only the semantic context at the surface level but also assumptions about the reasonable and logical means of conducting the cooperative use of language.  ...  Halliday and other socio-linguists are of the view that the utterance of a sentence cannot be confined to a mere linguistic act. An utterance, according to them, is a performance of an action.  ...

'The wild and wacky worlds of consumer oddballs'

Matthias Bode, Per Østergaard
2013 Marketing Theory  
Here, we use the concept of manifestos to analyze the fragile dialectics of a rhetorical and social praxis.  ...  In this sense, 'we-ness' is not a utopian final state, but a permanent necessity for CCT that emerges out of struggles and engages in conflicts.  ...  Belk, 1984; Scott and Peñaloza, 2006) , almost manifestos (Hirschman wanted the name 'The Esthetic Manifesto', but Holbrook decided to go for Kant and called it 'The Esthetic Imperative in Consumer Research  ...

Model-Driven Software Development [chapter]

Stephen W. Liddle
2011 Handbook of Conceptual Modeling  
Thus, if we accept Brooks' premise, nobody should expect any innovative approach to software development to be a "magical silver bullet" that will increase productivity by an order of magnitude within  ...  Software development is a complex and difficult task that requires the investment of significant resources and carries major risk of failure.  ...  Algorithms written according to action semantics are thus written at a higher level of abstraction.  ...

Peirce's Post-Jamesian Pragmatism

Nathan Houser
2011 European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy  
Burke notes that little attention has been given to developing an authentic Peirce-inspired pragmatist semantics focusing on actions and sensible effects to replace the standard empiricist semantics that  ...  [He] appears to assume that the end of man is action" but, on the contrary, Peirce wrote, "action wants an end, and that […] end must be something of a general description.  ...  See Peirce's third 1903 Harvard Lecture (EP2: 160-78), for a discussion of the meaning of "proposition" in the context of his argument for pragmatism.  ...

The logicist manifesto: At long last let logic-based artificial intelligence become a field unto itself

Selmer Bringsjord
2008 Journal of Applied Logic  
The paper includes a self-contained summary of logic-based AI, as well as rebuttals to a number of objections that will inevitably be brought against the declaration of independence herein expressed.  ...  This paper is a sustained argument for the view that logic-based AI should become a self-contained field, entirely divorced from paradigms that are currently still included under the AI "umbrella"-paradigms  ...  space to put on display a LAI agent of considerable size.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
We discuss the design of a generative semantic model and an associated semantic parser used to transform a free-text sentence into a logical representation of its meaning.  ...  However, current medical NLP systems fall considerably short when faced with the task of logically interpreting clinical text.  ...  Acknowledgements The author would like to thank the many members of the UCLA Medical Imaging Informatics Program for their constructive discussions related to the topic of this paper.  ...

To give researchers a guide to this space of systems, we devise a novel conceptualization of mathematical software that focuses on five aspects: inference covers formal logic and reasoning about mathematical  ...  Despite broad agreement that an ideal system would seamlessly integrate all these aspects, research has diversified into families of highly specialized systems focusing on a single aspect and possibly  ...  Semantics is a set of rules for interpreting objects, and knowledge is a pair of a datum and its semantics.  ...

An Assessment of (Mentalist) Cognitive Semantics

Esa Itkonen
2016 The public journal of semiotics  
But the latter claim creates a problem. On the one hand, for many cognitive semanticists conceptualization takes place under the level of consciousness.  ...  As Wittgenstein argues, meaning is use, understood as a web of intersubjective norms, comparable to rules of a game and accessible to conscious intuition.  ...  I owe a special debt of gratitude to Michael Kac for his copious comments on the first English-language version of this article.  ...
