Om mig

I am currently developing a theory of concepts, on which concepts are constituents of Fregean propositions, which I identify with event types (à la Davis). Furthermore, I take complex concepts to be act types directed toward concepts. To undergo such an event/act type is to entertain the concept. Concepts are to be individuated by their undergoing/entertaining conditions, which are to the effect that the event type play a certain functionalr role (conceptual role semantics). With these assumptions, I show how the standard method (of Lewis, Field, and others) of stating reductive physicalist definitions can be applied to the case of concepts. I think the resulting theory can solve several puzzles and provide responses to seriouis objections against conceptual role semantics.
