The Normativity of Logic

Date: October 5th-6th 2022

Place: Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, Munich, Germany

The normative role of logic has been one of the main topics of discussion in the philosophy of logic of the last decades. Many authors claim that logic is not normative in any substantive sense. On the other hand, even among those who defend the normativity of logic, there is a broad range of positions regarding in which way(s) logic can be normative.

In this workshop we will discuss these issues and related ones. We invite authors to submit abstracts on the following topics (although the list is not exhaustive):

  • Is logic normative?

  • Is the normativity of logic best captured via so-called bridge principles?

  • What is the relation between logic and reasoning? Is reasoning guided by logical rules?

  • Do logical norms commit us to certain theories of rationality? 

  • Does logic have a special normative role in social, argumentative practices? 

  • Is logical pluralism compatible with logic being normative?

  • Is logical anti-exceptionalism compatible with logic being normative?

Invited speakers:

Filippo Ferrari (University of Bonn)

Claire Field (University of Stirling)

Ben Martin (University of Padua)

Anandi Hattiagandi (University of Stockholm)
