CFP special issue of Review of Analytic Philosophy on "Logics of Communicative Interaction"

Deadline: Saturday 30 September 2023

Special Issue of RAP (Review of Analytic Philosophy) on 'Logics of Communicative Interaction'

We invite submissions to a Special Issue on 'Logics of Communicative Interaction'. This special issue will appear in the peer-reviewed international journal called the 'Review of Analytic Philosophy', which was first launched in 2021 as a new Open Access journal in analytic philosophy.

This special issue welcomes new work on the logical study of dynamic changes that take place in scenarios of communicative interaction. Complex forms of change in cognitive states of agents and their social relations can occur in the process of communicative interaction, which calls for a detailed logical analysis. A central topic in such an analysis is the triggers of such changes and their effects during the process of communication. The triggers can include a variety of possible speech acts while an analysis of their effect will typically zoom-in on the formal representations of agent's doxastic and epistemic attitudes as well as the deontic status of action types available to them. The study of such logics for communicative interaction can be approached from different disciplines, including logic, epistemology, argumentation theory, social choice theory, AI, Computer Science, and Philosophy. More specifically, this special issue welcomes work on the following topics:

- Dynamic Logics of Communication

- Logics of Speech Acts

- Logics for Belief Change and Knowledge Updates

- Dynamic Epistemic Logics

- Logical analysis of Communication in Social Networks

- Dynamic Deontic Logic
