1st American Symposium on the History of Logic

Validity throughout History

University of California, Los Angeles

May 24th-27th 2019

We are pleased to announce the first meeting of the American Symposium on the History of Logic, to be held at the University of California, Los Angeles, from May 24th to 27th 2019.

This Symposium is conceived as a meeting of specialists on different traditions in the History of Logic.

Each meeting will focus on a specific issue central to logic, with the aim of offering a comparative picture of its treatment throughout history. The intent is to bring together contributions particularly on:

·      Sanskrit and Eastern logic (Ancient, Medieval, Early Modern);

·      Ancient, Late Ancient and Byzantine Greek logic;

·      Syriac and Arabic logic;

·      Medieval Latin logic;

·      Renaissance, Early Modern and Modern Western logic.

For the upcoming meeting, we invite contributions focusing on accounts of Validity throughout History, with particular regard to the aforementioned traditions.

Presentations should be 40 min long (plus 20 min discussion).

Proposals should be submitted to [email protected] as anonymous abstracts (max 500 words) and a separate document containing the author's information, by September 15, 2018.

Decisions will be communicated by November 1.

We particularly encourage submissions by scholars from underrepresented groups in academic philosophy.

Selected papers will be considered for publication in the conference proceedings.
