    Prof. Maciej Witek, Institute of Philosophy and Cognitive Science, is pleased to invite to Lisbon Summer School on Speech Acts in Public Discourse: Normative Questions that will be held on 23-25 May 2022. Its focus is on the normativity of speech acts – and how it is subverted for abusive or manipulative purposes.

    The summer school is thematically related to the workshop on Norms of Public Argument: A Speech Act Perspective, held immediately after the summer school (June 27-29). Both events aim to use the framework of speech act theory to understand the broadly construed normativity of disputes (“argument” in one sense) and reasoning (“argument” in another sense) in the public sphere.
