SUMMARY:Workshop "philosophy of logical consequenc
e", Uppsala, Sweden
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20081031
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20081102
LOCATION:Uppsala, Sweden
DESCRIPTION:There is a traditional picture of logi
c that may be spelled out as follows: Logic is con
cerned with the principles for correct reasoning a
nd valid arguments; its principles are universal,
necessary, apriori and formal; logically valid arg
uments are necessarily truth-preserving and have a
fundamental epistemic significance; and finally,
logic is in some sense a normative discipline. T
his traditional picture gives rise to many questio
ns. The notions of universality, logical necessity
,apriority, and formality are difficult to analyze
. In what sense, if any, is logic normative? Is th
ere a principled way of distinguishing between log
ical and non-logical concepts? While continuing to
face these foundational questions, logic has deve
loped into an advanced mathematical discipline - m
athematical logic - where the informal notions of
logical proof, validity and logical consequence ar
e given mathematical explications. For more inf
ormation, see http://web.me.com/stenlindstrom/Webb

This traditional picture gives rise to many
questions. The notions of universality, logical n
ecessity,apriority, and formality are difficult to
analyze. In what sense, if any, is logic normativ
e? Is there a principled way of distinguishing bet
ween logical and non-logical concepts? While conti
nuing to face these foundational questions, logic
has developed into an advanced mathematical discip
line - mathematical logic - where the informal not
ions of logical proof, validity and logical conseq
uence are given mathematical explications.\n
