How do logics explain?
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The increase of formal logical systems throughout the 20th century has led to a number of rival logical theories. But which one is the correct one? According to logical abductivism, theory-choice in logic should proceed by scoring theories on various selection critera, e.g. explanatory power, deductive strength, elegance, unificatory power, etc. But, as opposed to most scientific theories, there is no agreement on what kind of phenomena a logic is supposed to explain, how they are supposed explain – or even if logic theories explain anything at all. In this workshop a number of international guest speakers will present their research on these and related questions in the philosophy of logic.
The workshop is the fourth event in the RCN funded project`Anti-Exceptionalism About Logic'.
