An Introduction to the Philosophy of Logic Paperback / softback
by Daniel (Universiteit Utrecht, The Netherlands) Cohnitz, Luis (National University of Mexico) Estrada-Gonzalez
Part of the Cambridge Introductions to Philosophy series
Philosophy of logic is a fundamental part of philosophical study, and one which is increasingly recognized as being immensely important in relation to many issues in metaphysics, metametaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of language.
This textbook provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to topics including the objectivity of logical inference rules and its relevance in discussions of epistemological relativism, the revived interest in logical pluralism, the question of logic's metaphysical neutrality, and the demarcation between logic and mathematics.
Chapters in the book cover the state of the art in contemporary philosophy of logic, and allow students to understand the philosophical relevance of these debates without having to contend with complex technical arguments.
This will be a major new resource for students working on logic, as well as for readers seeking a better understanding of philosophy of logic in its wider context.
