Special Issue Description

On August 26, 2017, our colleague Carolina Blasio fell victim to a fatal car accident in Campinas, Brazil, only one day after successfully defending her PhD thesis "Sobre Noções de Consequência Generalizadas e Lógicas Plurivalentes" (On generalized notions of consequence and plurivalent logics) at UNICAMP (Brazil). She was a young and promising researcher, besides being the administrator of the Brazilian discussion group on Logic, an active member of the Brazilian LaTeX community, and a diligent feminist campaigner. This special issue is dedicated to her memory, and is concerned with topics in logic and philosophy of logic related to her fields of interest. These topics include:

• Generalized logical frameworks and logical pluralism / logical plurality
• The notion of a logical theory, the notion of theory in Logic
• Classes of consequence relations generalizing or revising the Tarskian approach to consequence
• Generalized notions of compositionality, analyticity, and truth-functionality
• Comparisons between abstract, truth-theoretic and proof-theoretic approaches to inferentialism (in metalogic) and the meaning of logical connectives
• Entailment-related solutions to the paradoxes
