Keynote Speaker:

James Dreier, Brown University
The Normative Explanation of Normativity
Expressivists think normativity is explained by a theory of what normative expressions mean, which in turn is explained by what state of mind we express by using them. Many philosophers think that meaning is normative, and also that the attribution of intentional states to people is normative. Is there a problem with combining these two views? Do expressivists get trapped in a circle of explanation if they accept the normativity of meaning?
