Logic Colloquium: Timothy Williamson (Oxford)

Wednesday, March 23, 2016
4:30pm – 6:00pm

Storrs Campus
LH 201

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

"Alternative logics and abductive methodology"

Abstract:

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!
