Associated to the scholarship:11/14758-7 - A RESEARCH ON THE INFERENTIALIST RATIONALISM, BP.MS


Robert Brandom develops a philosophy of language from two main considerations. On one hand, he considers the primacy of the pragmatic on semantics. On the other, he develops an inferentialist theory of meaning. In this research, we propose a detailed analysis of the inferentialist semantics and its relation to the pragmatic. Firstly, our goal is to understand how sentences have meaning from their inferential relations. Then, to show the relationship between the practical use of sentences and the semantic content associated with them. (AU)
