  • (New) 17 December 2019, Set Theory Seminar, Hrafn Oddsson

    Speaker: Hrafn Oddsson
    Title: A Model for Paradefinite Set Theory
    Date & Time: Tuesday 17 December 2019, 14:30-15:30
    Location: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

    Abstract: A paradefinite logic is a logic that is both paraconsistent and paracomplete. In this talk we introduce a framework for models of paradefinite set theories based of Thierry Libert's work in paraconsistent set theory. We then present a model of paradefinite set theory which can be seen as the result of enriching the classical von Neumann universe of sets with various non-classical sets. We will also discuss the axiomatization of the theory of this model.
