CfP: "The Games of Logic: A Philosophical Perspective"

Deadline: 15 March 2009

For more than two decades now, each year has seen a growing number of important results in the emerging field centered on the interactions between game theory and logic. We feel that it is time for the philosopher to assess in which ways those results bear on the fundamental questions of the philosophy of logic. In particular, what insight have we gained on such central notions as truth, validity, proof, proposition, form and formality, logicality, etc. We would thus like to open a series of books that we conceive as a gathering place where philosophical ideas concerning those topics can be expressed, scrutinized and confronted. The series will be published by College Publications (http://www.collegepublications.co.uk/) as a new subseries of the 'Philosophy' series.

We therefore invite submissions related to all aspects of the philosophical consequences of the interactions between games and logic. More specific topics include (but are not limited to): game-theoretical semantics, dialogical logic, ludics, Ehrenfeucht-Fraïssé games, game-theoretical notions of logical form, game-theoretical notion of proposition, logical games between semantics and proof theory, games and modal logic.

The editors, S. Rahman and L. Keiff
