Torsten Odland Awarded the 2022-2023 Logic and Language Prize

Published: November 6, 2023

The winner of the 2022-2023 Logic and Language Prize is Torsten Odland for his essay “Fine-grained Content and Open Texture.”

“Fine-Grained Content and Open Texture” by Torsten Odland uses considerations of open-texture to provide an original argument for the thesis that “same content” relations are indefinitely extendible: that for every legitimate way of classifying representations according to sameness of content, there is an equally legitimate way of classifying them that draws finer-grained distinctions.

Established in honor of Rudolf Carnap and David Kaplan, the prize recognizes the best essay or polished dissertation chapter on logic, the philosophy of logic, or the philosophy of language.
