26 October 2018, Cool Logic, Davide Quadrellaro

Speaker: Davide Quadrellaro
Title: Cool Logic: What is Logic? The Psychologismus-Streit and the Modern Reshaping of the Notion of Logic
Date: Friday 26 October 2018
Time: 18:00-19:00
Location: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

What is Logic? Is it an art or a science? Is logic necessarily mathematical? Maybe we got it wrong, maybe logic is an empirical science. As a matter of facts, the idea that logic should not be studied mathematically, but rather considered as a part of psychology was one of the main tenets of many psychologist philosophers, like John Stuart Mill, Theodor Lipps and Christoph Sigwart. In my talk I would like to engage in a genealogical exercise and consider where our (often implicit) views on logic actually come from.

Join us for drinks and snacks in the common room after the talk.
