‘Naming and Necessity Revisited’
This conference was made possible by the sponsorship of the National Institute of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Additional support provided by the Wits Faculty of Humanities.
This conference explored contemporary developments in the philosophy of language, logic, and metaphysics in African and Western philosophical traditions, as well as scholarship exploring the interconnections among these areas of philosophy and these two currently disparate traditions.
The conference was held in Solomon Mahlangu House and Robert Sobukwe Block (formerly Senate House and Central Block, respectively) on Wits’ Braamfontein Campus East (East Campus).
