25-30 June 2015, Workshop "The idea of logic: Historical Perspectives", Istanbul, Turkey

Date: 25-30 June 2015
Location: Istanbul, Turkey
Deadline: 1 December 2014

Logic as a discipline is not characterized by a stable scope throughout its history. True enough, the historical influence of Aristotelian logic over the centuries is something of a common denominator in Western philosophy. But Aristotelian logic certainly was not alone (see stoic logic for instance), not to mention non-western logics. Even within the Aristotelian tradition there is significant variability. Furthermore, as is well known, in the 19th century logic as a discipline underwent a radical modification, with the development of mathematical logic. This workshop, held at the 5th World Congress on Universal Logic in Istanbul, will focus on both the diversity and the unity of logic through time.
