Deadline: 22nd March 2020

· Michael Devitt (The Graduate Center, CUNY)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
