Bologna Third Pluralism Workshop - Schedule

The format of the event is meant to give the opportunity to present your work in progress in a very informal and collaborative environment. Each speaker will have one-hour slot for presentation and Q&A.

As part of the research network activities we have decided to the give opportunity to network PhD students to present their dissertation drafts once they are in an advanced stage of the writing process. This time we will dedicate some of the slots to Will Gamester for presenting his PhD dissertation on truth pluralism (provisional title Pluralistic Engineered Alethiology).

Research seminar on the normativity of logic and logical pluralism

Description

The topic of the research seminar is pluralism in logic in connection with normative issues — such as what norms govern deductive inference in case we have a plurality of equally correct notions of logical consequence and/or truth, and how that affects logical practice.

The seminar is divided into two parts a first pert on general issues related to the normativity of logic and a second part related to assess logical pluralism with a special focus on normativity.
