Call for Papers: The Idea of Logic (5th World Congress on Universal Logic, Istanbul, June 25th – 30th 2015)

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for a workshop on The Idea of Logic: Historical Perspectives, which will take place in Istanbul on  June, 25th-30th 2015, at the 5th World Congress on Universal Logic.

The workshop is organized by Juliette Lamaire (CNRS, Centre Léon Robin, France) and Amirouche Moktefi (Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia), and will focus on both the diversity and the unity of logic through time.

Topics may include:

– Historical analyses on what specific logicians or logic traditions considered to be the nature and scope of logic.

– Historical analyses illustrating differences in scope and techniques with respect to the current conception of logic, but also suggesting points of contact and commonalities between these past traditions and current developments.

– Historical and philosophical discussions on the place of logic among the sciences and its applications/relations with other disciplines, now and then.

– Discussions of the logical monism vs. logical pluralism issue in view of the historical diversity/unity of logic over time.

– General philosophical reflections on what (if anything) the diversity of scope and practice in the history of logic can tell us about the nature of logic and the role of universal logic as such.

Abstracts (500 words maximum) should be sent via e-mail before DECEMBER 1ST, 2014 to:

Notification of acceptance: December 15th, 2014.
