How is Objectivity Possible? Brown Bag Talk. Max Kolbel.

"Abstract: What would it take to have objective representations and do humans have what it takes? In order to help answer these questions, I shall isolate one relevant sense of objectivity and argue that we need a generalization of standard frameworks of representational content in order to engage meaningfully with the question. Armed with such a general conception, I will articulate one necessary condition for objective representation: the possession of objective concepts and therefore objective contents. Finally, I shall explore two ways in which we might meet (or approximately meet) this condition."
