Conference in Frankfurt on "Dimensions of Normativity"

The Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main is hosting a conference on "Dimensions of Normativity", June 21 - 23, 2012.

"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?".

Among the speakers are

Ralph Wedgwood (Los Angeles)
Objective and Subjective "Ought" [pdf]

Holmer Steinfath (Göttingen)
The Normative Authority of Social Morality

Jonathan Dancy (Reading)
Degrees of Rightness

Duncan Pritchard (Edinburgh)
Truth as the Fundamental Epistemic Good

Rainer Forst (Frankfurt)
A Critical Theory of Normativity

Joseph Raz (Oxford)
Normative Dimensions: Law and Beyond
