CFP: Practices of Reading and Writing in Logic
Submission deadline: September 29, 2017
June 23, 2018 - June 24, 2018
Université Clermont Auvergne
A great deal of the working logician’s job is to write and read. First, to work a problem in logic, it is necessary to apply certain rules for transformation or deduction. In order to apply these rules correctly, you may write down the consecutive steps by symbol inscriptions and eventually read off the result. Secondly, communicating logical problems requires activities of writing for an audience, and the results to be read by others. Moreover, what there is to be read depends not only on what has been written, but also on what – and how it – has been read by others.
This workshop aims at an account of logic as construed from logicians’ practices of writing and reading. Further interests are activities of commenting or reviewing, and of publishing and collecting.
Topics for contributions may include, but are not restricted to the following aspects as applied to logic:
- Questions of notation
- Questions of literary style
- Logic journals
- Bibliographies and catalogues
- Perusal of public or research libraries
- Private libraries and collections
- Bibliometrical research
- Tools for collaborative research in logic
Contributed papers should not exceed 30 mins including discussion.
