Deadline: 22nd March 2020

Confirmed speakers:

·      Gila Sher (University of California, San Diego)

Call for papers:

 We invite submissions for 45-minute presentations, with additional time for discussion, on the broad topic of logical evidence, addressing questions including, but not limited to:

·      Can logical claims be justified?

·      If so, what distinct types of evidence can be relied upon?

·      Are our logical beliefs default reasonable?

·      What role do intuitions and logical paradoxes play in dictating our choice of logic?

·      Can it be rational to rely upon empirical evidence to justify logical theories?

Submissions should take the form of anonymised 1,000-1,500 word abstracts, and be sent to [email protected] by the 22nd March. Contact details, including paper title, affiliation and email address, should be submitted as a separate PDF. All submissions will be blind refereed.

The workshop has no associated registration fee, but speakers will be required to fund their own travel and accommodation.

An early-career masterclass on logical epistemology will immediately follow the workshop, from the 28th-29th May, for which a separate call will appear.
