CfPart: Methodological, Metaphysical & Epistemological Themes in the Philosophy of Logic, 28 - 30 September 2023, Bonn (Germany)

Methodological, Metaphysical & Epistemological Themes in the Philosophy of Logic  

University of Bonn — International Center of Philosophy NRW (IZPH), Poppelsdorfer Allee 28, 53115 Bonn  

Recent years have witnessed a revival and reconceptualization of several core questions in the philosophy of logic. These have led to enormously fruitful debate and unforeseen progress on a range of traditional issues related to the metaphysical and epistemological standing of logical theories and, consequently, to the scope and limits of applications of logical tools in the generation of knowledge. The goal of the conference is to consolidate the ongoing developments in the philosophy of logic and to critically investigate and systematize various families of positions in the epistemology, metaphysics and methodology of logic. Particular themes of the conference include:

* What is the status of logical knowledge? What methodology best suits the adoption and revision of logical theories?

* What features ground logical truth and consequence? Are realist/conventionalist approaches feasible positions in the metaphysics of logic?

* What, if anything, makes logic special? What does its exceptional standing mean for its relation to the sciences? In what way does its continuity with the sciences aid in the application of logical methods and tools?

* What is the normative status of logic? Is logic constitutive for ‘good’ 
reasoning? What are the connections between logic, reasoning and rationality?
