One of the most active members of ECOM, Drew Johnson, will be giving a talk with the title, “The Proper Function of Ethical Judgment: Towards a Biosemantic Theory of Ethical Thought and Discourse” at the North Carolina Philosophical Society meeting on March 27-28 at UNC Asheville. Go Drew!
Our director, Dorit Bar-On, has received a National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship for next year for completion of her book. The title of her project is the same as ECOM: “Expression, Communication, and Origins of Meaning” and it aims to develop her her neo-expressivist approach to the issue of continuities and discontinuities between animal communication and human language. Congrats Dorit!
