27 June 2015, Workshop on Philosophy of non-classical logics "Toward problems of paraconsistency and paracompleteness", Istanbul, Turkey

Date: 27 June 2015
Location: Istanbul, Turkey
Deadline: 15 November 2014

There is an ongoing philosophical and logical debate about motivations in accepting or rejecting the principle (law) of (non-)contradiction and the principle (law) of excluded middle. A logic rejecting the principle of non-contradiction is called *paraconsistent* and a logic rejecting the principle of excluded middle is called *paracomplete*. But what does it really mean to reject a classical principle (law)? And what are the philosophical consequences for this refusal? In which sense would it still be possible to defend nowadays that there is just one true logic?

This workshop, held at the 5th World Congress on Universal Logic in Istanbul, shall represent a privileged platform to evaluate proposals for a more integrated and general approach to philosophical motivations and consequences in the emergence of non-classical logics. Keynote speaker: Graham Priest (CUNY).
