Philosophical Logic at the Collegium: A Symposium

 

Time: Monday, November 5th 2012 at 9.30-17.30

Venue: Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, Room 136, Fabianinkatu 24

 

The name “philosophical logic” was coined by Bertrand Russell nearly 100 years ago. The subject itself is older, going back at least to Gottlob Frege in the late 19th century.  For greater part of 20th century the field of philosophical logic was recognized as an integral part of analytic approach to philosophy, and it continues to thrive as such.

The scope of philosophical logic has been variously understood. This symposium brings together number of international scholars currently to scrutinize and criticize the tradition as well as to broaden the field with new contributions. Many of the papers, both systematic and historical, take their lead from recent work by Professor Jaakko Hintikka.
