Lewis Carroll's Logic


It is well-known that Lewis Carroll, the famous author of Alice in Wonderland, was a mathematician and logician. His contributions to logic include a mature system of diagrams, a subscript notation for categorical propositions, a pioneering method of logic trees, a fabulous set of logical exercises and two paradoxes that have been widely discussed by his successors. Carroll’s logic directly related to his other interests and concerns, notably literature, mathemat-ics, and religion. Also, Carroll believed in the social utility of logic and worked on its popularization to a wid audience.

Carroll’s work in mathematics and logic has long been overshadowed by his literary reputation. However, recent decades witnessed a growing interest in Carroll’s serious writings. It is not rare anymore to meet with an isolated paper on Carroll’s logic at international conferences and journals. The aim of this workshop is to gather contributions and studies related to Carroll’s logic in a single venue, and thus to encourage scholarship and exchanges on the subject.

Those interested in logic and Lewis Carroll are invited to submit their proposals on any aspect related to this subject. Topics may include, but are not restricted to:

•History of logic

•Logic diagrams

•Logic trees

•Carroll’s paradox

•Logic education

•Logic, literature, and the philosophy of language

•Philosophy of mathematics

•Past and Modern applications of Carroll’s logic

•Comparative studies between Carroll and other logicians

•Biographical aspects related to Carroll’s logical work

•Legacy and influence

To submit a contribution, please send a one-page abstract by the deadline to Amirouche Moktefi at: [email protected]

Accepted submissions will be invited to submit a paper to a volume on Carroll’s logic that will be edited by the organizers after the workshop.

For any query, please contact Amirouche Moktefi at the email above.
