On 3 March 2021 long-time employee and director of the Institute of Philosophy of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Prof. PhDr. Tibor Pichler, CSc., was awarded the Medal of the SAS for the Support of Science. Professor Tibor Pichler worked at the Institute of Philosophy of the SAS from 1972 in the position of an independent academic employee in the Department of History of Slovak Philosophical and Political Thinking and in 1994 took on the position of Director of the Institute of Philosophy of the SAS.
This is a collaborative project between the Institute of Philosophy of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and the Department of Philosophy of the University of Vienna whose main aim is to establish a network that allows researchers from Slovakia and Austria working in the philosophy of language (within the analytic tradition) to interact. While contacts between researchers from the two countries have been previously established, no such networks specifically involving philosophers of language have been set up so far.
