Title: Compositionality solves Carnap's problem

Venue: aula rossa, via Azzo Gardino 23 Bologna.

Abstract:

Carnap’s Problem, to which he devoted most of his 1943 book Formalization in Logic, is the existence of non-standard interpretations of the logical constants which are consistent with all classical laws of (mainly propositional) logic. For example, it is consistent with these laws to take A?B to be true when both A and B are false.
