Logic Colloquium: Timothy Williamson (Oxford)

Storrs Campus
LH 201

Join us for a talk in the Logic Colloquium by Timothy Williamson (Oxford)!

"Alternative logics and abductive methodology"


The choice between alternative logics can be understood as a special case of theory choice in science, governed by broadly abductive criteria, without appeal to a special relation of logical consequence. This view will be applied to semantic and sorites paradoxes as putative motivations for departures from classical logic.

All welcome!
