4 - 5 June 2019, Workshop "Context Sensitivity & Logical Consequence", Bonn, Germany

Date: 4 - 5 June 2019
Location: Bonn, Germany

Logic and the study of semantic context-sensitivity are intimately related. By providing the tools to make the notion of the 'context of utterance' formally precise, logic and mathematics played a vital role in turning contexts into a respectable object of research in formal semantics. On the other hand, allowing contexts in a formal system has significant influence on the way some key terms of logic are construed in that system. The workshop approaches the interrelations between logic and context-sensitivity from both philosophical and linguistic perspectives. The guiding question is in how far context-sensitivity affects logical concepts and deductive reasoning.
