Biography

Friederike Moltmann is directrice de recherche at the French Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) and in recent years was visiting researcher at New York University and held visiting professorships at the University of Padua and the University of Düsseldorf. Her research focuses on the interface between natural language semantics and philosophy (metaphysics, but also philosophy of mind, philosophy of language and philosophy of mathematics), often in relation to generative syntax. She received a PhD in 1992 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Noam Chomsky as supervisor. She is author of Parts and Wholes in Semantics (OUP 1997), Abstract Objects and the Semantics of Natural Language (OUP 2013), and Objects and Attitudes (to appear, OUP 2022) and (co-)editor of Unity and Plurality (OUP 2016), Act-Based Conceptions of Propositional Content (OUP 2017), and Mass and Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science (Benjamins 2020).

Abstract

I will present a development of object-based truthmaker semantics for different types of clauses, that-clauses on different readings, wh-clauses and infinitival clauses.
