Live Blogging: ProDi Day 1, part 3
Tero Tulenheimo is speaking on "Remarks on Game-Based Theories of Meaning". He points out how game-theoretic semantics are importantly connected with truth-conditional theories of meaning. Interesting, dialogue games like those for N indicate, or at least seem to, that truth-conditional semantics are not necessary for a class of dialogue games to be able to capture a logic. But perhaps this just means (as many people have argued), that N is meaningless. The talk now veers to the realism/anti-realism debate, and the connections with Hintikka's game-theoretic semantics. Unfortunately, my battery will be dying soon, so I doubt I'll be able to finish blogging this talk.
