Motivations of the workshop
After the workshop in Prague, where Brandom has discussed his recent John Locke Lectures, a group of italian philosophers  attending the workshop suggested to make a second run in Italy, to work deeper on the theme of Analytic Pragmatism, and its links with inferentialism and other topics. The workshop is open to people interested in the program, and it will be preceded by one-day presentation of the main lines of Brandom's work. For PhD students wanting to participate without presenting a paper:  you should send a request with your curriculum to Cristina Amoretti (cristina.amoretti@unige.it). There will be free accomodation to people selected for a contributed paper (20 minutes presentation, with 20 minutes discussion). See call for papers.
