SUMMARY:Workshop "Context Sensitivity & Logical Co
nsequence", Bonn, Germany
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20190604
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20190605
LOCATION:Bonn, Germany
DESCRIPTION:Logic and the study of semantic contex
t-sensitivity are intimately related. By providing
the tools to make the notion of the 'context of u
tterance' formally precise, logic and mathematics
played a vital role in turning contexts into a res
pectable object of research in formal semantics. O
n the other hand, allowing contexts in a formal sy
stem has significant influence on the way some key
terms of logic are construed in that system. The
workshop approaches the interrelations between log
ic and context-sensitivity from both philosophical
and linguistic perspectives. The guiding question
is in how far context-sensitivity affects logical
concepts and deductive reasoning.

, logic and mathematics played a vital role in tur
ning contexts into a respectable object of researc
h in formal semantics. On the other hand, allowing
