Workshop "Identity and Paradox"

CNRS research unit "Savoirs, Textes, Langage"
Lille, France, April 11-12, 2013

Giuseppina Ronzitti (STL), 
Tero Tulenheimo (STL, Lille 3)

Workshop Description

On the one hand, the concept of identity naturally enters the discussion concerning many types of 
paradox that are not, primarily, about identity itself. On the other hand, there are a number of 
paradoxes considered as paradoxes of identity in which identity is apparently the concept 
generating the paradox (e.g., the ship of Theseus paradox, Chrysippus's paradox, the paradox of 
change, the paradox of constitution).

The goal of the workshop is to discuss philosophical, logical and linguistic aspects of paradoxes in 
which the notion of identity plays a role. More specifically, we wish to examine whether the so-
called paradoxes of identity really are paradoxes of identity in the sense that their paradoxicality is 
primarily connected to the concept of identity; and we want to investigate the role of concepts of 
identity in connection with the formulation/solution of other types of paradoxes.
