Are laws of logic normative? Do they, as Frege once claimed, prescribe “the way in which one ought to think if one is to think at all”? And if so, how and why? Or is this line of thought rather mistaken? Should we deny that logic has any specific normative status? And where would that leave us, if we still want to evaluate reasoning and now ask ourselves what norms are to be applied? Those and related question are the subject of this year's graduate conference of the Vienna Forum for Analytic Philosophy (WFAP), for which we are therefore happy to invite high-quality papers from graduate students on the following or related topics:

  • Logical laws as (constitutive) norms for thought and reasoning

  • Skepticism about the normative status of logic

  • Bridge principles

  • Normativity in the debate concerning Logical Pluralism

  • Non-logical norms for reasoning, including evidential norms, truth norms, probabilistic norms, etc.
