Sept. 21
Kate Ritchie (CUNY City College)
“Social Groups and Group Nouns”

 

Abstract: In this talk I sketch a view of certain kinds of social groups (things
like teams and committees). I then argue that this metaphysical picture of
social groups can be used to capture the semantic behavior of group nouns
(terms like ‘team’ and ‘committee’).
