29 November 2019, 5th Workshop on Connexive Logics, Bochum, Germany

Date: Friday 29 November 2019
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: Tuesday 15 October 2019

Systems of connexive logic have been motivated by considerations on a content connection between the antecedent and succedent of valid implications and by applications that range from Aristotle's syllogistic to Categorial Grammar and the study of causal implications. After four workshops on connexive logics in Istanbul, Raesfeld Castle, Kyoto and Bochum, a fifth workshop on connexive logics will take place in Bochum (Germany) on the 29th of November, 2019.

The fifth workshop aims at discussing directions for future research in connexive logics. Special focus will be given on historical aspects as well as connections to conditional logics. The workshop will be collocated with a workshop on the Logic of Paradox, from the 25th to 27th, and a workshop on FDE-based modal logic on the 28th. Keynote speakers: Vincenzo Crupi, Andrea Iacona, Spencer Johnston and Marko Malink.

Any papers related to connexive logics are welcome. Submissions of extended abstracts (up to five pages) should be sent to both organizers as a pdf file. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Historical considerations of the notion of connexivity;
- Discussions on the notion of connexive logics;
- Examinations of various systems of connexive logics;
- Relations between connexive logics and other nonclassical logics, such as conditional logics;
- Philosophical implications of connexive logics;
- Discussions on the relation between Experimental philosophy and connexivity.
